Not 100% sure about this but I read on some post here that iStat menus/other monitoring software never really gives you the right information and that nothing really does when you make a hackintosh. Like in my case iStat menus says my EVGA GTX 670 is never going above 0 percent usage.

Like I said though not 100% sure that this is true.

Hi there!!
i am having the same problem...did you fix it??or it is just a problem of iStat Menus??...i have to say that i feel more noisy my hack from my last version (Snow leopard) and the CPU fan and the box fan are at minimun so maybe this bigger noise comes form my GPU (GB 6870 OC)

Best!
