Is a thermal sensor needed when replacing HDD with SSD?
I have found similar questions to mine, most offering to make a fusion drive by adding an SSD blade. This is not a good option for me.
My internal HDD is failing in my iMac 27" (late 2013) and I am using an external Samsung 850 EVO 1TB SSD currently. I would like to remove the HDD and put the SSD inside.
I plan to buy the kit for replacement and a 2.5" to 3.5" tray for the SSD: https://eshop.macsales.com/item/OWC/SSD2...
*My question is however the case of the thermal sensor,* do I need the thermal sensor as seen on the OWC website here? https://eshop.macsales.com/item/OWC/DIDI...
If so, where would I stick the sensor on the SSD?
Many thanks for answering.
Is this a good question?
