I have changed hdd and fitted a ssd
hi guys well ive done it yesterday i fitted the new wd black spec hdd for my imac as well as fitting the ocz 120 vertex 4 ssd,,
all has gone well until i fired it up..
the fan runs constatley..
i followed the instructions to the letter but found these 2 questions to ask
1= can i have fitted the 6 pins censor coupling the wrong way
2= i have kept the heat censor for the optical drive and fitted it to the ssd with tape
would these 2 factors keep the fan running at top speed..
I am using the smc fan control app but does seem to make a difference and i have just installed SSD fan control app
that seems to have stopped the fan but would this damage the hdd and the ssd at all
at the moment the imac is running at 43 degrees c @ 998 rpm without any load on it
have done good with this or have i made a boo boo
Is this a good question?
