    2011 Imac Cooling???
    Ok... I bought the new 2011 27" with the i7

    Here's what I got upgraded and put into this thing...
    32gb gskill
    3tb hiTACHI HDD
    OCZ Vertex3 SSD
    Radeon HD 6990m
    And I've optimized performance with tools like Onyx and what not...

    Here's the problem...
    Has anyone come up with any cooling solution?
    Not controlling the fans but hardware??

    When you say hot, we need to know temperatures and fan speeds. Download the free iStat Pro Widget and give us some readings. Here's the LINK.

    Just for information sake..... your new iMac has three fans:

    1. CPU

    2. Hard Drive

    3. Optical Drive

    Right now for example, my 2011 iMac is showing 39 degrees C with a fan speed of 1200 RPM for the CPU.
