Need missing parts for SSD installation in 2015 iMac HDD bay

I know that this topic has been discussed before and I've read the threads but I need more specific details.

I'm planning on buying a newer iMac in the future as soon as I've saved up the money but that's a ways off. In the meantime, I would like to install a second 1TB SSD for additional, fast workspace and to be able to install other versions of the macOS on additional partitions.

I’m trying to work out exactly what I would need to do this and what it would cost so that I can make an informed decision. Ideally I would replace the 512GB Apple SSD with a 1TB but they’re simply too expensive and I already have a 1TB 2.5” SSD (Samsung EVO 850) on hand.

Note that I do not want or need an internal HDD. I have external drives for large amounts of storage.

The specifics: I have a 27" 2015 iMac with a 512GB SSD. It's my understanding that this particular build (SSD but no HDD) has a SATA connector on the logic board but all of the remaining parts for the HDD bay are missing. This includes:

  • SATA data/power cable
  • Drive brackets and screws
  • The "pin" screws that go on the drive itself

Is this correct? Am I missing anything?

I have the knowledge and skills necessary to perform the installaton. I know what upgrade kit to buy from OWC: "pizza cutter", adhesive tapes, 3.5" to 2.5" bracket, thermal sensor, etc.

Thanks in advance.

Mission Accomplished!

Short version: as expected the SATA cable was missing but the HDD brackets were in place. I didn’t have the mounting pins but we managed to get some regular screws to fit in the rubber grommets snugly. It won’t be vibrating loose. Also, I ended up installing a 500GB SSD instead of the 1TB which I found another use for.

Thanks to everyone for your help!

Thanks for all the advice. If you look carefully at steps 32 to 35 of the hard drive replacement guide you can see that the HDD brackets and their screws are already in place. The hard drive has the mounting pins on it. These are the parts I haven’t been able to track down. I have seen the brackets for sale but not their screws or the pins.

The bracket is already mounted! So you don't need it. All you'll need beyond the kit is the pins for the drive its self. Here's the Apple P/N's for them:

Yes the list is good to go. If you really want to, you could get a PC power supply for the SSD, since SATA power and data cables are separate.
