Good instructions but not full disclosure

Installing iMac Intel 27" EMC 2429 Dual Drive Kit (HDD or SSD)

1 - 3 hours

Moderate

My Problem

Replaced main hard drive with new ssd

My Fix

Repair went good. Instructions were well detailed and I was easily able to add new ssd.

My Advice

Instructions did not warn that as soon as you add a none apple hard drive that the fan will go max speed. Was able to find a 3rd party app on my own to make the fan use an internal sensor

iFix it should warn clients that if you add a none Apple hard drive that the fan will go to max speed without a 3rd party app.
