Replaced the 500GB HDD for 1TB, Help.

Hello, So I'm using HDD fan control and everything is working fine but I'd like to know if there is a program I can use in Boot Camp to control the maximum fan speed, I'm only doing this because this imac model is messed up once you replace HDD.

Is this a good question?

On this model the hard drives have Apple proprietary heat sensors and the fans go wild if replaced with a non-Apple drive. Do a web search for Apple part # 661-5517 which is a 1 TB Apple drive that will solve your issues.

Thanks for the reply, I have found a Western Digital WD5000AAKX, the one that comes with the imac ends in AAKS, do you know if it will work?
