Title:

How will iMac react if optical drive and fan are removed?

Text:

Hello, I already post a question regarding "noiseless imac" due to my hyeracusis disease. My iMac is now open (glass and display removed) and the goal is to replace the HDD by a SSD. I had a look at components location and wondered what will happen if I also fully remove the optical drive AND the fan under. Except possible evident temperature issue and risks, could you please let me know if the system will halt if the drive and the fan are disconnected from the mainboard ? Thank you, David

iMac Intel 21.5" EMC 2428
