Thermal sensor compatibility WD 1TB - Seagate SSHD 1TB


I was changing the hd drive of my imac 27" mid 2010 because de original one failed. I bought a Seagate SSHD 1Tb to put instead. I was not able to see which was the original HD until I opened 5 minutes ago. I chose the Seagate because I read about its compatibility with my imac mid 2010. Well, the problem is that the thermal sensor connector (8 pins) does not fit in the Seagate (4 pins). I also read about the OWC kit, is that the only solution for this?

Can anyone help me with this?

Thanks a lot Mayer! I just purchased it.


Don't forget the in-line thermal sensor Mayer pointed to!


@danj he said he already bought that.
