    Which widget are you using? Some are not yet intel compatible.

    istat pro 3.2 (islayer.com) and another generic one that just displayed temp.

    is there another way to check it without the widgets?

    upon further viewing of the website i found this:
    Please note: The SpeedIt kernal extension is required to view temperatures on Intel Macs. Fan sensors on Intel Macs can not be read using iStat pro yet.

    so thank you for responding and making me look around some more.

    Look for CoreDuoTemp app. IT,s got the Speedit kernel extension. It will show you the CPU temp. And since the Speedit is installed with CoreduoTemp, iStat will start showing the temp.

    The miniStat2 widget should be able to read your temperatures. Once you install it, a dialog box will appear; click yes to enable the temp monitor.

    The Demo will expire in a few days, but the license is the best $5 I've ever spent. :cool:

    I tried it and I don't think it gives accurate readings.

    It shows a 93% battery health and the battery time keep fluctuating with a maximum of 3:40, which is lower than 5 hours stated by Apple.
