    Hello,

    I have been using iStat menus lately and I been monitoring the temperature in particular. The problem is I can't seem to understand what each and every one of these labels mean. For instance, this is the TMP Menu looks on my MBA 13"

    Anyone knows what they stand for? Bjango says they don't know and that I should contact the manufacturer

    You should probably worry about the ones that will affect your usage. To learn about all of them, youll have to research/maybe use a little bit of common sense.

    If you're not under/overclocking, you really have no reason to worry about voltages.

    Your CPU A temperature is the temperature of the diode in your CPU. It is the most important reading. CPU 1/2 represent the temperature of the two physical cores in your CPU; also important.

    If you don't know what anything else is, you really don't need to worry about what they mean, unless you have a specific reason to. If you just want to know, google is your friend.
