i've been running a rig with 2 Mac Mini's. i need one to run Windows on for my work platform, and another one because i hate Windows for my personal computing. the older one i use for Windows was running hot. it needed a new fan. it can't die. i must work!! with this fix in place, it keeps on trucking. so much better than buying a new one!
newer is not always better. if it can work good, let it. fix it don't trash it. let it be it's purpose.
