Loud fan after upgrading from 500GB HD to 2TB HD
Me again! lol I upgraded from a 500GB seagate HD to a 2TB seagate HD and now I'm getting a loud fan. I know this has been an issue brought up in the past but I read through the past posts and none of the ideas fixed my issue. I re-checked the thermal sensor cable that I plugged into the HD because I read that some people had it plugged in upside down before. It only fits in one way so that's ruled out. In the tutorial for replacing the HD it says "During reassembly, be sure that the thermal sensor connector is connected to set of pins closest to the SATA connectors." The thermal sensor was a 4 pin connector and there are only 4 pins. So am I right in assuming that I have it corrct and that it may just have 2 pins or something in other brand HDs? Also, is it possible the LCD thermal cable is in upside down and that's causing the fan to go all out? I currently have windows 7 installed (alone without bootcamp) on my iMac so I don't have access to any of the mac utilities for checking fan speeds and such. Would I be able to download a windows base program for adjusting the fan and if so, would this be a poor idea? The fan is all out and it's doing it's job well as the computer is cool as ice so I'm thinking that taking it down a notch won't be an issue. Please educate moi!
