Replaced HD now the mac is burning hot

Hi all,

I replaced the standard HD with a 7200rpm 500gb. Everything went smooth ( thanks to your guide :) ) but noe the mini is very very hot all the time. Istat nano gives 60C for the HD and almost 80C for the processor..

Is it normal? Or what could I have done wrong? The mac is running well. I have no crashes or anything.

Is this a good question?

Check your connection of the thermal sensor attached to the side of the hard drive. Check both the placement of the sensor on the drive and the logic board connection.
