CPU T° monitoring


Recommended Posts

Hello guy's,


Thanks for watching my post. I tried to use Rehabman HWMonitor. With the FakeSMC files but my MacOs system wont boot with the FakeSMC kext inside kext/other. Are there alternatives or do i have to try to fix why my boot is stuck with the FakeSMC? This is on a MacOs Catalina(Vanilla) and my SPECS are.


Processor: Intel Core i7-8750H
Graphics: Intel UHD 630 + NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050


Let me know because i want to know if the CPU temperature is too high for me to use this. My plan is to buy a SSD. a mouse and a USB Wifi that works for MacOs. But want to know the temperature before i buy everything.


Thanks for your time.

I assume that by "FakeSMC files", you actually meant FakeSMC's plugin kexts which are mandatory for HWMonitor app to display information.



Can't see why you'd have issues with FakeSMC unless you're using it alongside similar kexts such as VirtualSMC... As usual, if you want proper assistance, please post a zipped copy of your Clover EFI or your debug files. By now, you should know the drill... Consult our FAQ section if in doubts.


There are alternatives apps of course; iStat Menus for instance.

Hello sir,


Yes I meant the FakeSMC files that come with the HWmonitor from Rehabman. 


I have VirtualSMC in kexts/other Should I delete this and use FakeSMC instead?


If the above doesn't work I will send my Clover EFI.


Thanks for your answer.
