I wish I had this answer the other day before I followed various notes online and finally began digging below the Logic Board. I eventually found it the other day.

Finally right there under the Optical drive as you’ve wonderfully photographed it. Thank you for posting the photo for others, and potentially myself if I have a long day!


@danj have one of these on the bench that I bought. Am working on the GPU but ordered the cable for a 2.5" SSD. iMac Intel 27" (Mid 2011) Dual Hard Drive Kit / Upgrade Parts Only

My thinking was to just keep the old hard drive, thus I don't have to buy an OWC thermal sensor for $50 (maybe do a fusion drive setup).

Can I retain the optical AND add an SSD?


@mayer - Yes! There is a third SATA port on the logic board. The guide will aim you to the spare port Installing iMac Intel 27" EMC 2429 Dual Drive Kit (HDD or SSD)


@danj Thanks, just got the cable in today. Do you know about this GPU replacement. I could not get the seller to respond to my email about it already being flashed. Seems like a much better alternative than putting an expensive Apple one in again that is likely to fail.
