You need to use this cable: OWC In-line Digital Thermal Sensor for iMac 2011 HD or SSD Upgrade. It makes no difference who's SSD you use they all require it.

Here's some background info: SMC issues

Even though this is a 2010 model? Doesn't Yosemit support TRIM?


The first cut of it didn't, the current version gives you a way to enable it. You don't need TRIM enabler software. It's a simple command line you type in a terminal window and it's done! Latest OS X update allows you to enable TRIM for third-party SSDs.
