My local one (Gravis, here in Germany) said I need to pay for their special C-Breeze
chip that stops the fan speed changing. I told them that I thought that was only the case if I replaced the HD with another 3.5" but they won't change their quote. Plus, they won't let me provide my own drive (I want an 840 Pro). Instead, I have to pay them for the 840 Evo (which is more expensive there than the Pro is on Amazon) plus 5 hours labour at 20€/hour. Hmm. Does your iMac still keep the warranty (or AppleCare) now that it's been opened up by a certified store?
