My Mac mini A1176 is overheating because of the hard drive
My Mac mini did an emergency shut down last night because it was running too hot.
Does an SSD produce less heat than a HDD, if not what can I do to stop it from overheating
To answer your direct question does using a SSD product less heat than an HDD - Yes it does.
But before we throw the baby out with the bath water let’s make sure that is the issue.
I would recommend dusting out the system using a soft paint brush and a can of canned air to blow the debris out. Focus on the fan blades and the heat sink fins.
As well as a good thermal monitoring app like TG Pro to see what’s happening.
But you have two sizable issues here! This is a very old model as such you’ll need to contact Matt at TG Pro to get the correct version for your system.
The second is the drives interface in this series is only SATA I (1.5 Gb/s) so the HDD or SSD drive needs to be able to run at this slower speed. Most of todays drives are SATA III (6.0Gb/s) these older SATA II (3.0Gb/s) and even older SATA I (1.5 Gb/s) are just impossible unless used. So don’t be to quick swapping drives.
once you have TG Pro running post a snapshot of the apps main window when it’s running hard so we can see things then we can dig deeper on what needs repairs or change.
