Passo 1 — SSD ¶
Depress the enclosure's front plate latch with your finger. While holding the latch down, swing the plate out.
Remove the front plate.
Passo 2 ¶
Line up the small SATA connectors so that the narrow side of the connector on the SSD matches the narrow side on the enclosure connector.
Slide the drive in through the front of the enclosure until the SATA connector is fully seated.
Passo 3 ¶
You may optionally install two Philips #1 screws that came with the enclosure kit to secure the SSD in the enclosure.
Passo 4 ¶
Plug the included sensor-enabled SATA power cable into the wide side of the enclosure's SATA connector.
Passo 5 ¶
Peel the backing off of the adhesive back of the small temperature sensor board.
Adhere the temperature sensor board to an exposed, metal area of the surface of the SSD, as close as possible to the SATA connector.
Fold the excess temperature sensor wires so that they are out of the way while you install the enclosure.
Passo 6 ¶
Install the mounting pins from the old hard drive onto the sides of the enclosure.
Passo 7 ¶
Attach any mounting brackets removed from the old hard drive onto the enclosure.
Passo 8 ¶
Connect the iMac's SATA power cable to the new temperature-capable SATA power cable.
Route the SATA cables where they will not interfere with any other components.
Passo 9 ¶
Connect the iMac's SATA data cable to the enclosure's SATA data connector.
Passo 10 ¶
Find a connector on the motherboard labeled HD TMP or HDD TEMP.
If the previous temperature cable is still connected to the board here, disconnect and remove it. You will no longer need it.
Connect the temperature sensor's two-wire red-black cable to the motherboard plug labeled HD TMP or HDD TEMP.
Route the excess wire so it does not interfere with any other components.
