Fan always running after SSD drive installed.

I changed the HD in my iMac from an optical drive (because it failed) to a SSD drive, and the fan is always running at full speed. I did a google search and found some software that in the past has resolved the issue, but I cannot use it because it is from a 3rd party and El Captain won't let me install it.

Anybody have any advise on how to solve this fan issue?
