UPGRADE TO TG PRO FOR FREE AFTER PURCHASING AND RUNNING ONCE - download at http://tunabelly.com/tgupdate.

FAN CONTROL AND NEW FEATURES ARE ONLY AVAILABLE AFTER UPGRADING FOR FREE TO TGPRO. We are no longer allowed to update on the Mac App Store which is why we're offering the free switch to TG Pro after purchasing.

Take a look at what's going on inside your Mac with TG Pro - no other app shows more temperature sensors or has as many options for notifications and fan speeds.

Find out which components are getting hot (and potentially overheating), turn up the fan speeds to cool down your Mac, get notifications for temperature alerts along with many other fantastic features. Plus, see if any sensors or fans are defective with the built-in hardware diagnostics.

Review by AussieRealtor

Caused Severe Overheating in Mac Mini 2012 - I upgraded to the ‘Pro’ version and was impressed with the user interface, all the fan control and the monitoring of sensors throughout this little system. This little system has two 1 Tb SSD drives and max memory and runs like clockwork with Parallels and Windows 8/Office 2013. It wasn’t long before I noticed the temperatures creeping up around the processor. Then the fans would speed up to a roar and Yosemite started shutting down applications! The mac mini case felt as hot as a frying pan. Everything returned to normal after I removed TG Pro - the little system immediatley starting running cool again. I don’t know what this application was doing to cause such intense CPU activity (I assume) but it is DANGEROUS so be warned.

Good & Useful a bit pricey (esp since there is a “Pro” app upgrade) - Like most of the commenters, I similarly appreciate this nifty little utility. While not an absolute necessity, this app is one I classify, “Nice to have.” It gives you peace of mind to know that your Mac is staying cool and if not, which apps, connections are pulling a lot of CPU, or other resource heat (e.g., demand). After all Apple provides Power and Battery monitoring, CPU monitoring, network monitoring available to the user. Why not heat? The sensors collect the data and the CPU reacts to that data, perhaps when it’s too late. The user should know about it in similar detail. Since Apple chose not to do so, thansk to TunaBelly we have that capability. Thanks, guys! TG and its big brother TG Pro use little resources on their own and give you the information needed in great detail or less if you set the preferences that way. Pro adds higher than normal fan control if you choose. FYI, my machine (15” Retina MBP) runs at 125°F with the fans running silently @ 2000RPM with the cover closed. I was concerned at how that would go. One item they could add is a comparison tool for stock machines and voluntary statistics from other users about the running temperture performance. I think a price point for the base software should be $3.99, but considering the rules in App Store a dollar more to be able to use on any family machine is not too expensive. Congrats to you for a nice bit of software.

Review by Rojoyinc

Just bought this and now they say there is a PRO version 14.99? - That will give you fan control. THAT SHOULD BE INCLUDED IN A UPDATE. Instead I sent and got MAC FAN CONTROL - a FREE APP that will let you control your fans. I use this app (4.99) to view temps) I use the Mac fan control (free) to control the fans. I no longer have a fps drop as my CPU was getting hotter. I just programmed the free app to increase fan speeds as CPU temp went up. 5 stars - if not for trying to sell me a PRO version for 11.00 more! shame on you.

Review by EGOSysDiz

Saved my bacon - Had to crack open my mac mini to reseat a HD connector that had come loose when I installed an SSD drive. After I closed it back up, I restarted and noticed that Temperature Gauge was showing that the fan wasn’t running AT ALL. And, the temp was shooting up, up, up. So, I shut it down, cracked the Mini open again and sure enough, the power connector for the fan wasn’t seated properly. Oopsie. (Hmmm, apparently, not reseating connectors properly is a thing with me.) Very highly recommended!

Review by The Razor

Power Hog - According to the Activity Meter this is usually the most power hungry application running. Current average Energy Impact 11.70, my number two application (which is Xcode) is at 8.7. I’m beginning to wonder if this application isn’t the cause for my laptop running so hot lately. If you are running on battery power stay away from this app.
