Maximum Hard Drive Capacity

Hello

I have iMac 27 inch, Late 2013 and it came with 1 TB harddrive

I would like to upgrade to 5TB or 6TB

My question is is there a physical space in iMac casing to accomodate large capacity hard drive? if any one know if they tried what is a maximum TB it can fit within a space internally.

Thanks

hello maximum 32gb ram memory and 3th hdd, you can consult Mac tracker

iMac Intel 27" EMC 2639 Hard Drive Replacement

by consulting the guide to replace the hdd I do not think that there is much room to physically add another if not one or 2 ssd ssd hdd instead of the original. there are also more subtle ssd last generation like in the new Mac, but I do not know if the motherboard controller accepts this type of connection. in the old iMac 27 I added hdd with a double cable to connect hdd and keeping the DVD optical drive

Hi Thank you for responce I have read replacement guide alredy but there is no indication of physical spece for replacement hard drive size. 1TB has W 101.6 mm D 147mm H 26.1 mm BOTH 3TB + 6TB has W 101.6mm D 147mm H 26.1 mm

So if 3TB is mamimum then 6TB shoud fit technically because physical dimention are same for both storage capacity.

Hopeing you understand my question?

Thanks

hello is not a single disk size problem, is a problem that the motherboard does not see the actual total disk space, if you can read up 3tb and you all install a drive from 4tb result is that you can only use 3tb and 1TB will be lost . but if you can put twice as hd interior space you can put 2 hdd 3tb but not make a total of 6TB but will be two discs separated by 3tb.

counsel you to buy an external hdd thunderbolt will be faster than the main one and you prefer capacity
