SSD Fan Control

iMac - MacRumors Forums - forums.macrumors.com
Hello everyone,

So I've got a very frustrating issue. A while back I replaced my HDD for a new Samsung evo ssd for my mid 2010 iMac. After successfully installing it, the fans from the iMac were blowing at maximum speed. I called my local computer store here in Holland and they told me this was happening because the new installed SSD has no thermal sensor, so the fans would just blow at maximum speed. They told me I needed to install a program called SSD Fan Control. After installing I had no problems anymore for around 6 months.

However since, i guess 3 days, 1 minute after turning the computer on, the fans again were blowing at maximum speed. I tried fixing it with the ssd fan control program but with no luck. I uninstalled the app and reinstalled it, I also tried smcfancontrol, all with no succes. Now i wiped my ssd and did a fresh install of high sierra, installed all updates and installed ssd fan control. Again, with no luck. Does anyone has a suggestion what I could do, or even better, a solution? This all happens like a minute after turning on so the fans do not immediately blow at maximum speed.

Thanks in advance!
