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.

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 Chuck "Sparky" B

Good App - Could Be Better - I Like the app, except for the bar graphs indicating MAX TEMP. There;s no temp scale, so you can;t what max temp an individual aenor reached, unless you use log files. I tried the demo for the PRO version, and it would be great to have since you can set your own fan speed limits to run things cooler than apple does. I don’t like the idea of having to purchase the pro version from the developers site, as I don’t like doing online credit card purchaes with unknown companies due to possible secirity leaks of my credit card info.

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 somebodytookmynick

An Invaluable App - Taught the Apple Store Geniuses a lesson. - I took my iMac 27” i7 (Mid-2011) into the Apple Store because the fans were racing intermittently. The technicians tried various fixes, or told me it was due to “non-Apple” memory, or because I was mixing memory sizes (Two 4gb and Two 2gb DIMMs). Nothing worked. Midway through the process, I presented the genuises with what I considered very conclusive evidence from TG Pro that there was an LCD Proximity Temperature Sensor that was either missing or showing a crazy negative reading when the fans were racing. But TG Pro showed two LCD Proximity Temperature Sensors, and the Geniuses swore that there was only one. Their Apple diagnostic software showed only one sensor. And all service manuals and parts descriptions that I found showed only one sensor. I emailed the developer of TG Pro, and he told me that if TG Pro showed a sensor, then it was there. Finally, on what was the fifth return trip to the store for the same problem, one of the geniuses took the TG Pro printouts from me and said they would look at them seriously. Not long after, a technician called and told me that he removed the cable to what they thought was the single LCD Proximity Temperature Sensor, and then he peeled the tape off the entire length of the cable. And you can guess what he found. The second LCD Proximity Temperature Sensor! He replaced that cable, and My iMac has been running like a champ ever since. End of story.
