hi all,

I’m running a flashed gtx680 in my MacPro now for a while.
But still have not found a way to read any gou temperature.

I would like to know the gpu die temperature and if possible to read other gpu temperatures.

Ive used tools like macsfancontrol and istat menu’s.
But non of these where able to give me any info.
So far I have not been able to found another solution trough using google.

I hope somebody can help me out,
Thanks in advance,

Logitech’s Arx Control app monitors basics like load, temp, and fans. It’s not the greatest but certainly functional. There are probably other options but I am more familiar with the alternatives for windows instead of OSX.

ok thx, but Logitech’s Arx Control app does not support GPU Die readings and other GPU readings ??

I hope somebody can help me out..

Try HWMonitor a hackintosh program that works for mac machine readings too. It will give you every reading under the sun.

It works perfectly fine all on its own reading the sensors on a Mac without Fakesmc.kext loaded..
Ok great, i will try hwmonitor app with my flashed GTX680..

Looks like your 5770 is very hot, always 85 degrees celsius. ?

Most times I have looked yes it is that hot. I do not use that machine much anymore it is mainly file storage for it now, turned on once ever week or so. I use my hackintosh now three times as fast using under 10 watts idle vs the Pro at close to 200. I did miss that heat last winter not now it is summer...

I mean cannot read the GTX680 temperature, can you see that the PCIe GPU temperature always stay at 85°C?
If it has the sensor it works for it I think, but now I fired up my 4,1 I see it has that for the temperature too. All the others I can see changing as the machine warms, up not the GPU so it looks like that is just a number it picks and stays at now I have checked again.

hmm, I have found hwmonitor , but it will install fakeSMC plugins.. ?
No way arround this, and fameSMC hackintosh plugins could make my install unstable ?

@MacUser2525 ,

How did you managed to run hwmonitor withouth fakeSMC kexts.. ?

You shouldn’t be forced to install fakeSMC, there should be an option if you choose customise installation.

You may also manually remove the fakeSMC kext if you accidentally installed it.

It looks for the devices exposed by the operating system when booted. The FakeSMC or its plugins actually, create the proper device tree when they load on a hackintosh. These are read when the program runs you can use something like Pacifist to extract the file without installing the others.

ok, installed hwmonitor today.
did not select FakeSMC kexts,

unfortunately hwmonitor i think cannot read the GTX680 gpu temps.
it only shows 85 degrees celsius, which is not correct.
looks like the same result als @MacUser2525 has.. ?

Is there perhaps another way for me to read my GPU temperatures.. ?

I've downloaded the app from here :
https://sourceforge.net/projects/hwsensors/

I found this one liner for the Terminal somewhere else, it does a reasonable job for it. Not sure if it reads the same readings that hardware monitor does but it does report similar results to it.

Code:
MacUser2525:~$ ioreg -l |grep \"PerformanceStatistics\" | cut -d '{' -f 2 | tr '|' ',' | tr -d '}' | tr ',' '\n'|grep 'Temp\|Fan'

"Fan Speed(%)"=19

"Fan Speed(RPM)"=1181

"Temperature(C)"=35

AFAIK, won’t work for GTX680

one simple way to look at GPU temp is to boot in to windows and look there, temp will be about the same as osx

or just let it be and not think about it

i never relay look at GPU temp in normal use. is there a reason you want to see it, or is it just for fun?
