forgot to transfer the hard drive emi foam
So about two months ago my iMac's hard drive dies so I replace it; no problems, easy enough. Been using it for the past two months or maybe more perfectly fine; still no problems.
And today I look at the old one sitting on my desk and see the EMI foam is still on it.
Is this important? What purpose does it really serve.
I know about EMI but I've never herd of a computer needing one little tiny square of foam on it's hard drive to protect it. I've only ever seen a problem from having 50+ computers all with open cases next to each other, and space heaters. So is it really worth taking it all apart again to stick the foam on the new HDD?
Thanks in advance
Bu iyi bir soru mu?
nah, it's not that foam. I remembered to put the heat sensor on the new HDD, it's in like a little plastic clip/cradle. http://i.imgur.com/HTvAs.jpg That is the form I forgot to transfer. I've dealt with a lot of hard drives but only the iMacs seem to have it. The only thing that worries me is that all the iMacs have it except for mine now :p But right now my HDD is reading 23C so it's not temperature I'm worried about. I'm just curious if that little piece of "emi foam" actually does anything to the point where it is worth opening the iMac back up to put it on. Thanks for your time an answers. Let me know once you look @ that picture.
