Thermal Sensor Necessary When Replacing HDD (Fusion Dr) in EMC 2639?
I have a late 2013 / 27” / EMC 2639. It has a Fusion drive setup (128 SSD + 3TB HDD). The HDD has failed and I’m now running on an external HDD (restored from a Time Machine backup).
I’m planning on buying a Seagate BarraCuda ST3000DM007 to replace the failed drive (same size, speed, etc).
I’ve read (on this forum!) that Apple used custom firmware on their drives to allow temperature info to be sent to the OS.
Was this still in effect with my 2639? If so, am I correct that I need an external sensor such as the OWC in-line thermal sensor? I do want the fan speed to be controlled by the OS…
Cette question est-elle utile ?
