    I have the iMac with 1TB HDD and 256GB SSD
    I'm planning on upgrading these to Solid state drives with larger capacity for a RAID 0 to have minimal mechanical parts
    the optical drive is staying for now since the sata speed is is slower and dont have the adapter for it.

    My question is I take out the 1TB HDD and place in the SSD will it cause a problem with the temp sensor/fans?
