Recently installed a 250 GB OWC solid state drive replacing the original hard drive in my black macbook, it now runs faster but fan seems to always run, the bottom feels hot and I think the battery goes down quicker. I though it would maybe run cooler with no moving parts. I am concerned I might shorten computer life if too hot and don't like all the fan noise. I see others on the forum checking the temperature in their machines but I don't know how to do that. Any thoughts or suggestions?

You can download the free iStat Pro dashboard widget to check temperatures. It should run cooler without the spinning drive.

Thank you. SSD is running at 34 degrees, CPU at 75 - is that ok or too hot? Could the CPU have more demand on it with quicker response time of SSD (everything is running faster but I woldn't think th echip frequency would be any different)

75C? That's a little warm, but perfectly within limits. It might be worth opening your MacBook back up and making sure all the fan cables are connected and that they are cleaned out so they have proper air-flow.

Try a fan control app after you open it up and check everything. My iMac did the same thing when I installed an Ssd and ended up going back to a plain hard drive.
