    Why? OSX manages memory just fine, I don't think you need to worry about this.

    I use iStat.

    I've got coconut battery on mine. I only downloaded it to check the health on my battery since my laptop is nearly 3 years old. You don't really need to worry about this kind of stuff though.

    I've never had a need for this kind of stuff, so I'm not sure which one would be the best.

    Dont really need OS X is good enough, third part solutions are likely to do more harm than good.

    1 - UltraFan by far the best for temp control on OS X (anyone with a Mac should look at this one)
    2 - SMC Fan Control resets minimum fan RPM to user defined value
    3 - Bresink Temperature Monitor most comprehensive temp monitor at present & free; all sensors are utilised and can be graphed.

    Coconut Battery, now with excellent online comparisons

    CleanApp if you really need, logs installations and has online data base so is pretty good at catching all files to uninstall and clean up lost files.
