New FakeSMC is out

The new FakeSMC is out. The new team put by slice , mozo does a lot compared to the original FakeSMC that we love. This new fakeSMC includes temperature monitoring for CPU , Northbridge and a lot of other things. It even monitors your nvidia GPU temperature as well. Basically if you want to monitor your temperatures for your system. Feel free to check it out

For laptop users you may need additional modification as Slice pointed out in your dsdt to get information about your voltage and stuff. It may or may not work great on laptop. But the bright side is if you have an nvidia card or intel onboard video (X3100) you can use it to view its temperature

Installation Instruction

NOTICE – This version of FakeSMC simply does not work from /Extra or EFI partition. You’ll have to install it to your /Systems/Library/Extensions. Be sure to remove any earlier version of FakeSMC

1. Copy the kext to /System/Library/Extensions

2. run pfix (if you’re using pfix)

Alternatively you may want to use tools such as Kext Utility  to install kext. Its up to you , if you’re comfortable doing it manually , feel free to do so. The important thing  you’ll have to remove your old FakeSMC and install the new one to your /System/Library/Extensions

The advantage is that you get to see temperature information about your system via iStat Widget or iStat Menu
