Replacing SATA HDD to SSD for my 27 inch iMac
I am from India and I have a 27 inch iMac late 2012 EMC 2546.
I purchased Samsung SSD 850 Pro and I am looking to replace the internal SATA hard drive that came with the system. I approached the apple service guys and they said they will do it for a nominal cost but I have to provide them all the necessary components.
I have a few queries with regard to this.
1. Going through all the posts in the forum, I understood I need an 2.5 to 3.5 HDD adapter. I am confused in selecting one. Could someone please give me a few options?
2. If I am changing the hard drive, should I be getting thermal sensor cable? What is the use of it? I just read that for MacOS El Capitan and Sierra, you wouldn't need the sensor cable.
If I am missing something apart from these two, please guide me. Thanks in advance.
Is this a good question?
