Replace Fusion drive for a SSDiMac 27" 5k late 2015 Replacing the HD from a Fusion iMac for an SSD samsung 850 EVO or PRO, Will I have the cooler fan speed...
Answer to: How did you remove the SSD metal cover?I had success in taking of the protection / heat sink using a hair dryer a metal spud and a laser infra-red thermometer. Once my hair dryer was not so strong temperature didn't passed from 70o Celsius I didn't wanted the ssd hotter than 80. C. After some minutes it realized With little effort on the spud. I did it to use the ssd from the mac pro in my Macbook Air 11. I don't think it is necessarily to use that plate if you upgrade your mac pro. it doesn't seem to be a heat sink since it is plain and it is glue with 2 stickers. It will not cooler the ssd, maybe will even keep the heat inside of it since it is a air cushion
