What SSD will work in my late 2012 iMac PCIe 7/17 socket

Hi

I have a late 2012 27” iMac

Serial no C02KD9RSDNCV EMC no 2546 model A1419.

I want to add a SSD into the empty PCIe 7/17 socket, I have searched the net for a blade type SSD that will work, I have found 1 or 2 that are supposed to work with mid 2012 to early 2013 variant, iMac like

Mid2012 - Early2013

MacBook Pro A1398 A1425 SSD

512GB

1T8

P/N: MZATEA 1398 HMHP

S/N: 20208112021398

MODEL: MZ-A1398A1425

but the model number given is A1418, can anyone tell me if my model A1419 is compatible?

If my iMac will not support these drives is it possible to use an adapter to change the 7/17 socket to one that will accept a more readily available SSD?

If anyone had upgraded there iMac either with a module that will go into the existing socket or used an adapter that allowed the use of a more readily available SSD, could they post the part numbers or name of the hardware they used.

Here’s a useful write-up on the Apple drive specs and what the system can use The Ultimate Guide to Apple’s Proprietary SSDs as noted the interface is a mSATA III (6.0 Gbps)

The OWC Aura is what I would use.

@lesmilton The SSD that you're looking for is here (take a look at the available options). If you're looking for other options, it might be easier to use the EMC 2546 number or the iMac13,2 identifier.
