Processor type(s) & speed:
If you have replaced your iMac’s Hard Drive with a new Hard Drive or a SSD and the fan has started running at full speed creating a lot of noise, HDD Fan Control will control the fan speed in relation to the drives temperature, preventing the loud noise whilst keeping your drive safe.
iMac HDD Fan Control does not require Apple’s temperature sensor or cable to obtain the drives temperature as it uses the S.M.A.R.T (Self-Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology) protocol built into all drives, this means you no longer need the temperature sensor or cable for the fan to operate correctly.
Controls Hard Drive Fan Speed Directly.
Sets fan speed in relation to Hard Drives Temperature.
Obtains Hard Drives Temperature using the S.M.A.R.T Interface so no need for the missing Apple temperature sensor, or cable.
Runs at startup, so will work even when user is not logged in.
Has fail safe feature to allow fan to go to full speed should it not be able to obtain temperature readings to protect the drive.
Can be used with SSD’s.
Can be used with SSD’s and Hard Drives that do not provide temperature values in a cut down mode.
