HWSensors is a software bundle that includes drivers and applications that allow you to access information from hardware sensors available on your Mac.
FakeSMC is an open source SMC device driver/emulator developed by netkas.
NOTE: FakeSMC & Plugins starting from v915 provide additional sensors information to HWMonitor on Macs. By installing FakeSMC on a real Mac you acknowledge that you know what you are doing and how to recover your system if something goes wrong.
Notes about this fork by RehabMan:
Note: This version forked from kozlek's branch at: https://www.assembla.com/code/fakesmc/git/nodes

Older builds are archived here:
A note about the contents of the download:
Debug/FakeSMC.kext - debug FakeSMC.kext + PlugIns (install for troubleshooting)
Release/FakeSMC.kext - release FakeSMC.kext + PlugIns (recommended install)
Debug/HWMonitor.app - debug version of kozlek's HWMonitor.app
Release/HWMonitor.app - release version of kozlek's HWMonitor.app (recommended)
SL/HWMonitor.app - release version of slice's HWMonitor.app, modified to
work with kozlek's FakeSMC.kext. Primarily for use on Snow Leopard, but
will also work on ML or Lion.
- install FakeSMC.kext using Kext Wizard.
(Note: if you had previously used slice's and have the various kexts
spread all over /S/L/E, be sure to remove them all)
- run HWMonitor.app and set it up to your preference.
