    Hello folks

    I have a 2010 Macbook Pro and I just replaced the cd bay with an SSD drive, installed at 7200 rpm HDD and maxed out the RAM.

    But, now I hear my fan all the time. SMC tells me that my fan is running at 2000 rpm which apparently is the default...

    So, I'm wondering if there is something I can/need to do to minimize the sound or if I have to live with it. It's not loud, but I don't want to hear it...

    Would a simple cleaning of the fan help? Note, I did not hear my fan running before I upgraded these parts except when I was running it very heavily.

    ;)

    Maybe you can try cleaning you fans with the method show in the vid? Hope it helps though..also so far hows the performance? Am looking towards the same setup as yours.

    Performance is insane! It's faster than when I bought it. Startup time is 12 seconds or so...

    I will never again buy a Macbook Pro that doesn't have an SSD - worth every penny.
