Replace HDD to SSD iMac 27" late 2015 (model MK462LL/A)

Apple iMac MK462LL-A 27" Late 2015

Dear forum,

I recently purchased an iMac 27" late 2015 (model MK462LL/A). Since the factory upgrade of the HD to SSD was pretty expensive, I purchased a Crucial BX200 960GB SATA 2.5" 7mm (with 9.5mm adapter) Internal SSD. I have the following questions.

I wanted to follow the below tutorial.

iMac Intel 27" Retina 5K Display Hard Drive Replacement

However, the tutorial states that is up to Mid 2015 only.

1)Does anyone know whether there are any changes in the component layout for the late 2015 iMac?

2)I purchased a 3.5" bracket to mounting the SSD. I would like to know whether I should also purchase a OWC In-line Digital Thermal Sensor for Hard Drive Upgrade for 27" ? I cannot find any threads stating Crucial SDD lack of temperature sensor?

3) I also would like to know whether I need to purchase new Adhesive Strips once removing the screen glass?

Thank you very much!
