    hello
    i need advice about the temperature regulation after i installed a SSD in my iMac 27 ' inch (Mid 2010)
    I have found a program called "SSD Fan Control" but is there another way to regulate the temperature of the SSD?

    Are you using a special thermal sensor connector, I was just watching this YouTube video about it (not sure if this applies to earlier iMacs though..



    Go to about 4:40 in the vid

    OWC make a heat sensor control kit to overcome the problems of fans roaring like a Jumbo down the run way. For me I do not like software that limits fan speeds if there is ever genuine overheating.
