    I installed an ssd on my imac's superdrive.

    i have a problem with the superdrive fan. I had the sensor sticked on the SSD but the fan's rpm stayed on 3200. i sticked the sensor on the case i used for the ssd and the rpms started low but after 2 hours they have reached 2000.

    i read that i can short that cable but i dont understand how to do it. :S

    any help?

    I really doubt you should do that, just double check your steps and make sure you have done everything right.

    why do u say that?it seems to be a solution adopted from many people..:confused:

    although i shorted the two cables the problem wasnt solved. on the contrary the cpu fan went crazy as well. :S

    use a fan control app, smc fan control is the best!

    smc control app is to set a minimum speed for the fans, so it is used only if u want to speed them up.
