Unless the SSD integration is causing it, but those are supposed to run cooler. If the computer is sleeping and you wake it do the fans come on soon after waking? The HD should take quite a while to build up enough heat to rev the fans is what I'm getting at.

What does Temperature Monitor say.


iStat Pro Widget:

(ambient room temp is 73F at the moment, and FF and Mail are the only apps running. It takes a few minutes before the fan ramps up after waking.)

The fan ramps up when the CPU is being used/maxed and heats up. Maybe I made better cable reconnects when I reassembled the Mini yesterday. Internal sound is working again, too.
