    I had a technician install a SSD on my iMac 27" 2011 underneath my 2TB HDD. Before the installation the 2TB HDD was quite as a snail. I did not hear the fan at all. Now, after the SSD has been installed, right after every boot, the fan is working non stop. What can I do about it? I installed fan control app but don't know how to set it.

    Fan Control is pretty self-explanatory. Drag the sliders to where you're comfortable with the speeds and thresholds.

    It's possible he borked the sensors though.
