There are many benefits to adding a second drive to your iMac such as improved speeds, greater storage space, and less heartache when installing new software. Use this guide to install one using our optical bay drive enclosure.

    • Before beginning, unplug your iMac and lay it on a soft surface as shown.

    • Stick a suction cup near each of the two top corners of the glass panel.

    • To attach the suction cups we sell, first position the suction cup with the movable handle parallel to the face of the glass panel. While lightly holding the suction cup against the glass, raise the movable handle until it is parallel with the other handle.

    • If your suction cups refuse to stick, try cleaning both the glass panel and the suction cup with a mild solvent.

  1. Gently lift the glass panel perpendicular to the face of the LCD enough to clear the steel mounting pins attached along the underside of the top edge of the glass panel. Pull the glass panel away from the lower edge of the iMac and carefully set it aside.

    • Pull the glass panel away from the lower edge of the iMac and carefully set it aside.

    • During reinstallation, be sure to meticulously clean the inside of the glass panel and the face of the LCD as any dust or fingerprints trapped inside will be annoyingly visible when the machine is turned on.

  2. Remove the eight 8 mm T10 Torx screws securing the display to the outer case. The last two pictures are detail shots of each side of the display. The last two pictures are detail shots of each side of the display.

    • Slightly lift the top edge of the display out of the outer case.

    • Do not lift it too much. There are several cables attaching the display to the logic board.

  4. Pull the vertical sync cable connector out of its socket on the LED driver board near the top left corner of your iMac. Pull the vertical sync cable connector out of its socket on the LED driver board near the top left corner of your iMac.
    • Pull the vertical sync cable connector out of its socket on the LED driver board near the top left corner of your iMac.

  5. Rotate the display out of the outer case enough to disconnect the LED backlight power cable from the LED driver board. Disconnect the LED backlight power cable by depressing the locking mechanism while pulling the connector away from its socket (toward the bottom edge of the iMac).

    • Disconnect the LED backlight power cable by depressing the locking mechanism while pulling the connector away from its socket (toward the bottom edge of the iMac).

  6. The display data cable plug has a wire lock.  Disengage the plug's lock by rotating the plastic tab so that it points upward.  (It is not a pull tab.) Pull the display data cable straight out of its socket on the logic board.

Well, actually, it was much easier than I thought.

The only problem about this is that the hard drive temperature sensor cable. Even I bought the same brand HD, it still doesn't work. So I have to install fan control to control the fan speed.

But other than that, it works very smooth. The speed is great.

Thanks, ifixit. The home tech toolkit is great and really helpful.

Hi. I wanna know if is mandatory to connect the SSD with enclosure or it's possible to connect directly to SATA cable like on model EMC 2428 that has an third SATA conector free and then fix the SSD to back panel with 3M

Ibai Bi - Yanıt

Im pretty sure if you want to just mount it with tape that would be perfectly fine. Had mine apart and even thought about it myself before properly mounting it.
