Anyone tried the "Micro SATA Cables" blade-SSD adaptor?
I've been waiting to upgrade our 2012 27" iMac's HDD to 3TB and add an SSD via the blade connector. Wondering if anyone has tried the Micro SATA Cables version of blade to SATA adapter??
Their price is about half of their competitors. Has anyone been successful changing out their HDD for a higher capacity HDD and also adding an SSD via the blade connector?

Just Ordered 27" iMac w/ 256GB SSD
I just ordered a fully upgraded 27" iMac with 256GB PCIe SSD
I want to Rip It Open and install a 1TB HDD and Using Disk Utility merge the two to create my own Fusion Drive. (The standard Fusion Drive has a 128GB SSD with a 1TB HDD)
I want to tear it open and install a standard HDD, but I doubt it will have the SATA cable and drive enclosure inside.
Any sources on where I can purchase the cable and enclosure?
I am also concerned about what HDD I can put in. OWC says there are thermal issues with using non Apple HDD.
Can I purchase an Apple HDD online? Someone's used drive would work.
Took me a long time to hit the order button.
I have been waiting for the New Mac Pro, but it's overkill for my needs. Plus I would still need to purchase a Thunderbolt Display, which hasn't been updated in ages (I'm guessing they are working on a 4K display). I think the iMac is the right choice for me, especially if I can get this HDD installed in it.
Here is the configuration I ordered:
With the following:
• 3.5GHz Quad-core Intel Core i7, Turbo Boost up to 3.9GHz
• 8GB 1600MHz DDR3 SDRAM - 2X4GB
• 256GB Flash Storage
• NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780M 4GB GDDR5
• Apple Magic Mouse
• Apple Keyboard with Numeric Keypad (English) & User's Guide
• Accessory Kit
