I tried to upgrade the CPU of my Mini, but I break the cord of the temperature sensor and now I kind of messed up it.
I am not able to solder it on.
Can any here help me to take out the temperature sensor and read the exact no. of the IC so I can order it online?
The fan is spinning at full speed all time now, please hlep.
Thank You.

I have no idea. But on the bright side, your fan is cranked up and running. At least your Mini won't cook. Cool

unfortunatly the mac mini service source book does not provide a part number for that sensor. maybe you can compare it to the HDD sensor which is mounted to the internal frame and plugged into the motheboard next to the battery. if that sensor is the same, its part # is: 922-7319.
good luck!

Now you could think of it like a PC, although the Mini fan running full blast is still quieter than my PC box running at idle! You just lose the sexiness of the little silent box...

I had an iMac that I destroyed the heat sensor attached to the HD bracket. I just went to a local Apple repair shop and it cost $15 for the sensor and another $15 for the 2" cable. I'm sure they are the same sensors used.

Good luck!
