How to check temperature on a Mac?


Earlier I was moving away from Google Drive to Box.
There’s a lot of files being moved and synced etc.

My Macbook does it’s thing again when things get too hot. It starts to spinning its fan loudly. The room temperature is like 30 - 32º? So I started to wonder what heat is my Macbook taking.

I tried atMonitor (note the website doesn’t show anything last checked but a pageok), but for some unknown reasons it keeps crashing on my Macbook.

Thankfully I found another free and hassle free solution. iStats.

No this is not the iStatsMenu which is rather costly, though no doubt being useful. This is a command-line tool which is light, is free, and is not resource gulping.
