    So questions about the sensors on the 2010 Mac Mini.

    Are the 2 sensors on the hard drive the same part.

    Being the idiot that I am, I broke the sensor that mounts on the hard drive its self. I have been looking for a part number or part to order and the only thing I can come up with is

    Apple Part #: 076-1360

    ****After 45 minutes with a call center in India they are saying the sensor is part number 076-1369...any thought?

    Now this sensor is the one that mounts on the sata conector...any ideas if it will work for the back as well?

    My fan is running at a constant speed ot 5500rpm....at least I know it will stay cool.

    Oh and by the way, I replaced my stock Toshiba 320gb 5400rpm drive with a Hitachi 7k5...WOW amazing upgrade. I clocked a direct copy of a file that was 2.29gb and the Toshiba was 2min55sec and the Hitachi did it in 1min1sec... 2 minutes FASTER!

    I need help ASAP as this is my main machine right now.

    Ok. So are the sensors the same? I guess I want to make sure I'm getting the right part. Also will I need to flue them to the hdd?

    may be best way to go. I was unable to figure out for sure which one you need. at least the price is not terrible.
