What hardware monitoring app on Hackintosh with VirtualSMC?

I don't believe there is an equivalent to HWMonitor for VirtualSMC. You may look at alternative apps such as iStat Menus but this may rely on data provided by the traditional sensor PlugIns of FakeSMC.

Hi liemhatang,


I just came across your post trying to tweak my sensors setup. HWMonitor works with VirtualSMC. You can download extra VirtualSMC packages here:



The VirtualSMC package contains the following:

  • VirtualSMC.kext
  • SMCSuperIO.kext
  • SMCProcessor.kext
  • SMCLightSensor.kext
  • SMCBatteryManager.kext


Copy the kext's to Clove > kexts > Other and reboot.


The problem that I'm having is that my SSD is showing 253% usage left and my battery level is constantly at 82% when fully chrged. I think that my problem is configuration as opposed to the app not working properly.



I hope this helps.
