    In a thread regarding SSDs and fan issues, I saw a cable from applecomponents which looked like the thermal sensor cable, but it was shorter and it looped around, which shorts out the thermal sensor I assume. Applecomponents.com seems to be down for a while now, and I cant find the cable anywhere else. Anyone know what I am talking about?

    The reason I want the cable is because I switched out my optical drive for a SSD, and I have constant fan issues. It speeds up to about 2500 rpm after the imac running for a few minutes, and I cant figure out why.

    There's a temperature sensor on the optical drive. You should have just left that in your machine.
