    Hey guys i just bought a macbook pro 13"(love it!!!!!) and i installed SMC fan control...the only problem with this app is that it isnt displaying the temperature of the cpu correctly...it stays at 32 degrees F and i know that is not correct. Any ideas?

    Probably isn't updated for that model correctly. You'll have to give it some time for an update to be pushed out. That said, why do you need SMC Fan Control? It's not necessary for 99% of users. If your main interest is in seeing the temperatures (also not necessary, but I understand some people just enjoy seeing it), try iStat Pro or iStat Menus.

    Also, why should pay when if only the temp is what looking for, smc just do it for free?
    menumeter + smc does much better job (and for free) than istat

    iStat Pro is free (ironically).

    I dislike apps that claim to control SMC activity...Just use Istat Pro which shows at a glance temps. fan speeds, Network bandwidth usage etc. The fans take care of themselves in my MBP and MBA.
