    Hi,
    As a previous user of Windows,the performance tool was handy for me to see how's going on my computer,like If everything is going okay but while in macbook I just keep guessing about the things that happens,like there was once an unexpected shutdown (after the fan update,annoying fan noise and shut down,later totally fine ) So I was wondering If there are any easy tools that I can use as a check up ?

    Thanks :apple:

    Geekbench.

    Edit: And iStat to monitor temperature and fanspeeds etc.

    You have Activity Monitor which gives you stats about CPU/RAM/network usage, you have the Console which shows you the logs of system messages (if you experience some problem with the system, look here) - these are the easiest to use.

    I think that Intel® Power Gadget is really informative. For example, here is a shot of what my MacBook Pro is running like when CPU use is a steady 700% while running my folding program.
