    I just put an SSD into my 27" imac, but hooked the temp sensor back incorrectly since the fans are going 100%. Anyone know how to properly attach the sensor back in correctly?

    my current fan speeds are according to istat pro:

    optical drive 999 rpm temp 37
    HD 3437 rpm temp 34
    CPU fan 938 rpm temp 49

    If this is the current iMac then an SSD should be connected on the backside of the logic board if possible. Replacing the internal HDD will cause the fans to ramp up as the iMac cable uses the internal sensor on the disk itself which has special firmware in order to do this to Apple's specifications.

    There are rumours of a kit to bypass this but as far as I know it is not yet available. Search hardmac.com for more details.

    Waragainstsleep, it is plugged into the logic board. Since im not replacing the HD, I will not have that fan issue. My problem is that i put the sensor in wrong so its ramping up and im not sure of the correc way to put it back in. My mac shipped with a Samsung drive.
