    Hi, I have a mid-late 2010 27" 3.6, i5 iMac,

    The 1tb hard drive needs to be replaced,

    I am just wondering, is it ok to install a 2tb hard drive into this iMac

    Will a 2tb hard drive effect, heat, fans or anything else?

    Other than voiding any AppleCare coverage, it won't make any noticeable impact on heat or fans.

    Check ifixit.com; they have some good instructions (and their drive prices were competitive last time I checked).
