    Hi,

    After replacing my HDD with SDD, my CPU goes to 90 degree very quickly.

    Macbook Pro - 15" - Late 2011
    SSD - Cruical 512 GB

    What's happening ???

    It needs to re index the drive. This occurs when you change the drive or re install the OS. It will go away. If it persists check back here.

    Check Spotlight in the top right corner. Is there a dot in the middle of the magnifying glass? If yes, click on it to see the time before your drive finishes indexing. Your temps should be fine after.

    I always wait for this stuff to finish before concerning myself with idle temps. Also 512GB SSDs are completely awesome.

    I've had the dock and finder run up the CPU for no reason before. Just quick the task and relaunch it and it fixed my CPU running hot like that.

    I think, it was initially hot for 4 - 5 hours after installing SSD. Now its not that much Hot. Max - 78 - 80.

    Its quiet and cool.

    Big improvement after upgrading to SSD. Application loading is very fast.
