    We've upgraded four 2011 27" iMacs in our office with Crucial MX200 500gb SSD drives, NewerTech adapters and OWC In-line thermal sensors. Everything works great.

    My question today... We have another 2011 iMac that was BTO with a 256gb Apple SSD mounted behind the optical drive and a 1tb HD mounted in the standard hard drive location. I want to replace the Apple SSD with a larger Crucial SSD and put a 4tb HD in the standard HD location. When I replace the apple SSD will I need another OWC In-line thermal sensor? Or is the sensor cable only needed when changing HD in the regular regular HD slot?

    Thanks for your help!

    Sensor cables are only needed for the hard drive
