Monitors the clock frequency, power and temperature of CoreDuo and Core2Duo CPUs in a Macbook or Macbook Pro. According to the manufacturer, it can help lower the operating temperature, save power and reduce fan noise.
This tool is embedded in the system settings and displays not only hardware information, such as the CPU temperature, but also many other files and information, such as weather data or your own images, on the desktop. All this can always appear in the foreground if you want. Also displays a command line so you can input and start commands directly.
Software-based test program for CUDA-enabled graphics cards. Uses a range of standard test templates to check that the GPU memory is operating correctly. Some of the tests are based on the popular MemTest tool. Download requires registration.
Uses available processor capacity to search for unknown Mersenne primes; receives its tasks from the PrimeNet server with which it exchanges small amounts of data (hundreds of bytes a week); does not require a continuous internet connection; can also be used to run stability tests, for example on over-clocked Intel processors.
Also known as 'S.M.A.R.T. Monitoring Tools', this consists of two tools (smartctl and smartd) for monitoring HDD properties via the S.M.A.R.T. system integrated into modern hard drives. Warns the user in advance about drive errors to avoid irretrievable data loss. Monitored parameters include temperature, read errors and data throughput. Fast and secure download from The H
