Re: CPU usage blowout with constant RPM

Hi stevejb1, this sounds like OS X trying to protect you from frying your MacBook. The kernel_task will start eating up CPU cycles (and doing nothing with them) to get the processor to cool down when nothing else helps. When no other program can use the CPU, it will cool down a little. Try setting t...

Re: Slower shutdown issue

Hi Steven,

I just tried reproducing the issue and it appears to be gone. Might have something to do with the Mavericks GM?

Anyway, I'll post technical information if the issue re-appears!

Slower shutdown issue

I've experienced another problem though (might not be Mavericks-related): MFC seriously impacts the shutdown time - by about 10 seconds. With the exact same programs running (Safari, Activity Monitor, F.lux, DeskConnect, Messages, Preview, VLC etc.), without MFC it takes ~2-4 seconds until the scree...

Re: Mac OS Mavericks

Hi Steven,

I'm sorry for being late, but I've been busy lately and didn't notice your reply.
The link seems to be offline, could you PM me the build?

cheers

Re: Mac OS Mavericks

On Mavericks Preview 5, the app basically works just fine, but the Menubar-Icon will only update when the application window is currently shown. Once the app is 'hidden to menubar', the rpm-label won't update anymore and stay at the last value it had when the app was hidden. Also, when the app start...

Re: 0 values on windows after a while (macbook pro retina)

Hi,

thanks for the suggestions, I will try killing bootcamp.exe and see if it solves the problem. What exactly does it do, anyway?

By the way, I can confirm that the problem is not limited to rMBPs, a friend of mine had the same issue with a regular 13" 2012 MBP (Windows 7).

cheers

Re: nil values after running on windows for some time

Hi Steven, sorry it took so long, I've been busy with university lately. I've tried a few times, and it seems like the symptoms only appear when MFC is running... But contrary to what I've said before, it sometimes takes only a few minutes (if even) before all sensors show 0. Also, the fan speed doe...

Re: nil values after running on windows for some time

Hi Steven, Yes, the problem is solved after a reboot (at least when I reboot to Mac OS X, have never tried rebooting into Windows again since I only use it for gaming). About whether it happens when MFC is not running - I'll do some testing, but I don't know when I'll get around to do it, I hope I h...

0 values on Windows after a while (macbook pro/air)

Hi, I've noticed that, after some time playing games in windows, the program displays 0° temperature and 0 rpm on both fans of my rMBP 15". It only happens on Windows (8, don't know about other versions), not Mac OS X. After this effect emerges, any other hardware monitoring software fails to d...

Re: Reset caches and settings

Steven,

thanks for the quick reply! I actually found the file shortly after posting, sorry for the effort :/

It works now, but the graphics are very blurry, I guess the app is not optimized for retina yet :)

Reset caches and settings

Hi, I recently upgraded from a 13" MacBook Pro to a 15" MacBook Pro Retina, and restored my data via Time Machine. Now, MacsFanControl still recognizes my notebook as a "MacBook Pro 9,2" and displays only one fan instead of two. It works fine on a Bootcamp partition where the pro...
