    I used the Temperature Monitor app. to view my HDD temp., which is 46?C, but it won't let me view any other sensors...how do I see how how I'm running?!?!?:mad:

    You can use this kernel extension but it is not the most reliable thing in the world.
    This is GUI wrapper for the kext but I forgot where I saw it.

    Apple has not officially allowed CPU temp monitoring.

    Is the intel chipset & other mobo sensors accurate? How much +/-?

    Please note that the accuracy of all current 'temperature testers' is questionable.

    totally questionable...

    Mine was showing 27 before I did the firmware update, now its back to 67... its all over the place...

    Seems to hover around 64 after the Firm. Up.
    What does the Frequencies mean in CoreDueTemp?
