eGPU fan control

PostThu Jul 30, 2020 7:10 pm

Dear all,

I have looked everywhere without success so here I am. I would like to know if there is a way to monitor the activity of my eGPU, the temperature and to control the fans.

I have a MacBook Pro (15-inch, 2017) on Catalina and the eGPU is BMD AMD540.

I use "Macs fan control" from to monitor the temperature of all cpu's and control the fan ....
You might check "istat" from which gives much more statistics and also include fan control - you can run a test version for 14 days. (I have no experience -yet- with this program)

You might also want to try TG Pro, which seems to me to provide the most extensive temperature and fan monitoring for Macs, but I don't know if it will extend to an eGPU. It's a free download / trial though, so nothing to lose - just try it and see.
