    A "cool" feature would be the ability to control the fan speed of your mac for times when your laptop gets really hot from watching videos or running certain applications.

    A feature that let's the user monitor and control the fans of the computer.

    Please add fan speed control and performance app that we can change the speed of the cooling system.

    That's not possible without digging really deep into the system and most likely will become obsolete soon due to Apple's decision to block kernel extensions in macOS

    With all the tools already included in Parallels Tool Box I couldnt resist suggesting a fan control and display of all the parameters of your machine such as fan speed, CPU/GPU/RAM/ETC. temps to make sure everything stays within reasonable temperature while you are working especially running virtual machines.

    such functionality requires very deep integration into macOS' kernel. Apple eradicates kernel extensions from macOS, so unfortunately we cannot provide such feature, although we would love to.

    If not fan controls, what about an internal temperature monitor?
