Hey guys,

I want to monitor my CPU frequency with HWMonitor on my iMac, but it says I need FakeSMC for reading of the CPU frequency, but I'm afraid of ruining my macOS install if I install FakeSMC. I want to test my results against Intel Power Gadget cause my Turbo Boost isn't working and I want to confirm that it isn't.

My question is, can you use FakeSMC on a real Mac? If so, should you uninstall AppleSMC.kext first before installing FakeSMC?
