Re: Test TjMax Temperature (max allowed CPU T) on your Mac

Steven, any idea what that error message means--the one I posted as follows, on Oct. 17? ** Note ** This is actually a MacPro4,1 with the firmware hack installed that lets it run SIerra.

Before MFC, Mac OS wasn't controlling fan speeds at all on Mac Pro

I've long wondered why, without the help of Macs Fan Control ( MFC henceforward), the fans in my Mac Pro Early 2009 8 core never speed up. This goes as far back as Mountain Lion, which came on it when I bought it (used) several years ago. (I can't speak to any earlier versions of MacOS.) I also wond...

I understand you concern, it will be done with time.


Steven,

We know you have an actual life to live, outside of CRYSTALIDEA and Macs Fan Control :D, but after 2.5 years since you replied to wolfeye78, is this any closer to happening?

Thanks!

"Too many open files in system" -- is Macs Fan Control contributing to the problem?

Today I started seeing a lot of errors in my system log saying "Too many open files in system". A little checking with the lsof and some other tools appears to show that Macs Fan Control has over 3000 files open, mostly on /dev/null: $ sudo lsof -n | cut -f1 -d' ' | uniq -c | sort | tail 4...

General questions (not about MFC) on Mac temps and fans

First, an observation: My PowerMac G5 dual CPU 2 GHz, running Leopard 10.5.8, has always (for the 5+ years I've owned it) controlled its fan speeds automatically without assistance from add-on software. When I bought my Mac Pro used about three years ago, the fans always ran at their slowest speed a...
