Question: iMac 2013 - SSD Upgrade - Poor Performance
I have upgraded the internal hard drive on my iMac with an SSD (Crucial MX500 - compatible drive).
I installed a clean version of High Sierra, drive formatted APFS.
First issue - the internal fan spun at maximum RPM. I installed Macs Fan Control to control it.
Second issue - the performance of the iMac is now very slow.
So, I installed a clean version of Sierra (drive formatted HFS+) and had identical issues.
I've enabled/disabled TRIM, tested the SSD with various software (all positive), reset SMC/NVRAM.
I've attached an Etre System report and frame grab of the Activity Monitor.
Is there something I'm not addressing?
Thanks in advance,
iMac 27 inch, late 2013
