Hardware Monitor Widget Edition is the Dashboard version of its "bigger brother" Hardware Monitor.
Hardware Monitor Widget Edition is the Dashboard version of its "bigger brother" Hardware Monitor. You need a working registered copy of Hardware Monitor in order to fully use this widget. The applications are designed to give you access to all sensor readings Mac OS X uses to monitor and cool your computer.
The widget allows you to select two of your computer's sensors which should be displayed via Dashboard.
The sensor readouts are displayed in a compact panel.
Unlike other widgets, Hardware Monitor is capable of processing the hardware calibration data Apple stores individually into each G5-based computer. So it displays the exact readings Mac OS X internally uses for cooling control, not just an "educated guess".
Due to recent efforts in reverse-engineering Apple's System Management Controller, it is now possible to support all fan sensors of all Intel-based Macintosh systems. The sensors and their parameters for permissible limits are found automatically. Additional temperature sensors are expected to be supported in the near future.
