    I currently have a third party SSD within my iMac. I would like to install the original HDD inside, and keep the SSD and the superdrive. Is this possible?

    I have the Late 2009 27" model, i7 @ 2.8 GHz.

    I've been redirected there several times too. I just hope there's another way. Would suck to carry around an external combo drive.

    I have that same model and am intersted in an SSD in place of the HD. Did you do the install yourself? What make/model did you install? Any issue regarding fan operations?

    Yes, I did the installation myself. I installed OWC's Mercury Extreme Pro 3G, the 240 GB model.

    I didn't have any issues with the fan running at full speeds.
