Excessive fan noise after hard drive replacement
I just replaced the hard drive in my Mac (Late 2006 2.13 GHz). It has been years since I've had it up and running, but the fan seems like it's unusually loud. I've reset the SMC and PRAM and this hasn't resolved the issue.
The fan is running at about 60-65 decibels according to an app I have.
I figure my next step is to open things back up and take a look inside.
What things should I look in to while I'm inside? I plan to check the positioning of the hard drive and the state of the fan. I'm likely going to replace the PRAM battery as well. Is there anything else that I should look out for?
Also, could it be related to the fact that I used a 3TB hard drive when the default was 250GB?
Is this a good question?
