iMac fan working at full speed ( making noise ) after replacing HDD by SSD


Problem: After replacing the hard disk on my iMac to SSD, the fan/s started to work at full speed and make noise.

Reason:  Replacing the original hard disk breaks the system’s temperature monitoring and the fans will stat to work on full speed.


Solution for Mac OS X:
Install the free software "SSD Fan Control", Find the noisy fan and control it in ‘Manual’ or ‘SMART’ mode.
