SSD compatibility (Thermal Sensor Connector)
I have a 27" i7 iMac that I bought close to two months ago, and I would like to replace the internal HDD with an SSD, and I have a 2.5" to 3.5" form factor converter. The only thing I have noticed is that there is nowhere on the SSD to plug in the Thermal Sensor Connector. Do I just ignore it? Can I?
This is the SSD that I ordered: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.as...
I am currently booting off that SSD, which is connected via USB 2.0, and I believe that it's being bottlenecked by USB 2.0.
Esta pergunta é pertinente?
+ vote for the sheer effort
Won't you get a lot slower bus speeds though, due to using USB over SATA?
I just went ahead and put the SSD in with an ICY DOCK 2.5" to 3.5" HDD adapter. I just left the thermal sensor unplugged, and it works fine—but my computer thinks that the HDD is 128 degrees Celsius... which may or may not be a problem. http://grab.by/4fcM
I used this as the 2.5" to 3.5" converter: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.as...
