SSD temperature sensor - tried everything already
This question is archived. No new answers are allowed, and only the question's owner may edit it.
Have a 2009 27" Imac i7. Just upgraded to an OCZ Agility SSD in the main hard drive slot and a WD Scorpio HDD in the optibay slot.
The temps from iStat are fine except for the OCZ, which it says is running at 263ºF. I have tried an old imac temperature sensor, I have tried to short the sensor, I have flipped the grey/black wires, I have also tried SSDFancontrol (which does not have a control for the CPU fan which goes off as well), also SMC Fan control only sets minimum speeds.
For whatever reason, nothing will work with this iMac, what options have I left? (besides switching back to previous HDD, as I am already aware of that option)
Also switched the large 3.5" Original hard drive back into normal slot, and moved the ssd to the optical bay slot to boot off it, using all the original cables. OCZ still reading 263ºF and running up the fans. Also have now switched my ADATA SSD into the optibay slot, it runs at the proper temp, but the fans will not slow down.
Did you try resetting the SMC controller? If you have not, it may be worth a shot, you can do so by following the instructions below.
1. Shut down the computer.
2. Unplug the computer's power cord.
3. Wait fifteen seconds.
4. Attach the computer's power cord.
5. Wait five seconds, then press the power button to turn on the computer Note: For Intel-based Xserve computers that are not responding, you can shut down locally, or by using remote commands, or by pressing and holding the power button for five seconds.
The System Management Controller (SMC) is responsible for many low-level functions on Intel-based Macs. These functions include:
Responding to presses of the power button
Responding to display lid opening and closing on portable Macs
The SMS (Sudden Motion Sensor)
Ambient light sensing
Status Indicator Light (SIL) management
Battery status indicator lights
Selecting an external (instead of internal) video source for some iMac displays
