Replacing HD for SSD

Hey - I’m looking at replacing the 1TB HD in my EMC2638/A1418 iMac (i7) with a faster SSD. I have openend up loads of iMacs for various reasons so I know how hard it is and how careful you need to be.

I have recently replaced the HDs in a few Mac Book Pros and I used Hynix SL300/SL308 500GB for this and they have been great. I plan to put the same drive into the iMac however I am unsure if I will need a temperature sensor? I did not need one for the mac Book Pros (fans run normally) - do i definitely need one for the imac? also do i need to setup TRIM? I seem to recall reading somewhere that the Hynix drive doesn’t need it. Thanks!

that you will not need the thermal sensor adapter on this machine:

It is already a 2.5 inch form factor, so swapping in a 2.5 inch SSD is reasonably easy, once you get all the adhesive separated with the plastic pizza cutter wheel, and carefully remove the lcd/screen combo. If you break this assembly, replacements are currently only available from China directly, and are expensive. I would really consider a thunderbolt external drive instead.

Hey Alex!

Kinda late but if it helps..


I performed the HDD - SSD change recently in the i5 2.9 Ghz model and I didn’t need the thermal sensor. I placed a Samsung EVO 860 500GB and also upgraded the RAM to 16gb, it’s a new machine. I’ll try the PCIe Nvme SSD storage option soon, we’ll see how it goes/ if it’s worth it.

I know you mentioned that you’ve opened up macs before but still, be careful. Other than that it’s not that difficult, just follow the macsales youtube tutorial and you’ll be fine.

Good luck!
