    Is there any app out there that can monitor how many RPMs the fans are doing in the mac pro? And what would you guys suggest I use for monitoring temp right now i am using "temperature monitor" as its the only one that works that i have found.

    Google "Hardware Monitor" or "iStat Pro"

    Not sure if they are Universal or not...

    iStat Pro is what I tried first It does not even bring up the temps not considering the fans. I will give Hardware Monitor a shot.

    I also use Hardware Monitor. Version 4 added a bunch of sensors for the Mac Pro. :) I had an x.264 encode going with the following.

    iStat Pro doesn't work with the sensors on the Mac Pro. Only the very latest version of Hardware Monitor/Temperature Monitor works.
