SUCESS: Notes on Installing SSD in 2011 Mac Mini
 
hi all,
 
I replaced the HD in my mac mini with a OWC Electra SSD 6G.
 
1. ''''FanFan speed the same after; there is no sensor to worry about.''''about.'''
According to the temp readouts from iStatPro, the hard drive temperature is still being read in this year's model, likely via the S.M.A.R.T. hd interface. It's uncertain if the mini's one main exhaust fan factors this temp into its rotation speed. My SSD never changes in temp by more than a few degrees C.

2. make sure to remove black plastic cover off of old hard drive before pulling SATA cable out of old HD; otherwise you won't be able to.
 
3. The OWC video guide is great, but you don't need to pull out the motherboard; there is just enough room to slide the old HD out and the new one in.
 
4. Installing Lion over the Internet with Int Recovery worked, but I had to change my wireless network from WPA2 security to WPA and disable uPNP; not sure why. Go with most basic/compatible settings, and as Crunch suggested below, use an Ethernet cable if at all possible.
 
After Lion downloaded (4 hours), it installed in 4.2 minutes flat. Jaw-dropping speed.
 
thanks all,
 
d
 
ps: mac mini exhaust fan speed of ~1800 rpm is normal under light load.
 
PS: I used both the iFixit guide and the OWC video when I did my upgrade, and I needed both to do it right. Note that OWC suggests removing the motherboard to exchange the hd, but as iFixit points out, this is not necessary to get the HD out or the new one in.
