Last week I performed an SSD installation in my 2009 corei7 27" imac. I took out the superdrive and installed the SSD in its place. some pics here ... http://www.flickr.com/photos/srikeshava/5006123435/sizes/l/in/photostream/ http://www.flickr.com/photos/srikeshava/5006123821/sizes/l/in/photostream/ For the past few days, I have noticed that the imac is getting very hot. The fan on the top right is constantly blowing hot air out, from the moment the machine reaches a certain temperature ( which I'M not sure of the temp value). Also the sides and top on the machine are extremely hot to the touch. Here are the readings from hardware monitor: http://www.flickr.com/photos/srikeshava/5023797724/sizes/l/in/photostream/ I am trying to not open the imac until I know what is causing this temperature problem. Thanks p.s I never had the fans spin or work overtime as much as they do now. Not until I did that SSD install.
