Upgrading HD and/or adding in SSD
Hi to everyone!
I have one Imac 27" late 2013, i have already maxed the ram from 8 to 32 GB with 4 Slot of Crucial DDr3. I have already bought this SSD: Crucial Technology CT480M500SSD1.P
I have read completely the guide about the substitution of Hard drive, can i change the original HDD of 1 TB 720 rpm with the SSD that i have bought?
Is it possible, or is it better to install it in other place to be more fast?
The connection's speed of the intel 8 series chipset is 6 Gigabit, negotiated is 3 Gigabit.
The Hard drive inside is an APPLE HDD ST1000DM003, beneath the information are that the hard drive cannot be removed, is it true??
I hope someone can explain me better. Thanks to those who help!
Can you give me some link where i can bay an adapter frame for the SSD please?

Dan i found this external box Thunderbolt for 2,5 " HDD and SSD. What do you think about it? When i'll put inside my SSD, can i make a fusion drive among the 1 TB internal HDD with terminal string? Let me know.
Sorry, no you can't use the SSD blade PCIe connector with your SATA SSD. There is no converter or adapter to do that. Otherwise you are swapping out the HD for the SSD so you can't create a fusion drive as you need both devices to fuse together to make a fusion drive. Best to live with what you have until you have the money to either get the correct PCIe SSD or get a new Mac Pro system. Lastly, I don't recommend upgrading the HD on this system as you'll have issues with the custom cable harness Apple uses and the thermal sensor. Best to get an external HD.
