TG Pro installs as a menu bar animated icon, that displays the average temperature and fan speed:
Drop down menu
Clicking the menu expands a drop down menu with all possible temperatures in the system:
TG Pro can override the default fan control logic, and either manually control each fan in the Mac, or define custom boost conditions:
In a normally functioning system, there should be no need to boost fans, the internal logic should be enough to keep the temperature within limits.
A wide range of notifications is available:
In ideal condition, such a program would not be necessary. However, in the real world, some places are more dusty than others, and fans efficiency is reduced.
If you start sensing the computer a bit hotter than usual, or you hear the fans as a bit noisier than usual, a temperature monitoring program becomes mandatory, otherwise continuous use of the computer at high temperatures might damage the storage or even the PCB itself.
How to get?
TG Pro is not on AppStore, but is available, inclusive for a free trial, directly from Tunabelly Software.
