What is the best SSD upgrade for my 27" iMac 5K 2017?
I updated from 8GB ram to 32GB RAM recently because I noticed the slow preview and render on my After Effect usage. However this did not speed up the process, so I have been researching on how to improve the speed of my iMac.
My iMac specs:
- iMac (Retina 5K, 27-inch, 2017)
- Processor: 3.4 GHz Intel Core i5
- Memory: 32 GB 2400 MHz DDR4
- Startup Disk: 1TB Macintosh HD 1
- Graphics: Radeon Pro 570 4096 MB
I’m quite new to this and have been asking local technicians here in Malaysia that repair and do Mac upgrades however none is offering the CPU upgrade service. So I’m thinking of doing the upgrade myself. If I do manage to take apart the screen, I would like to upgrade the i5 to a i7 7700 processor.
I found out that there is also options of upgrading the NVMe too apart from HDD to SSD, and I’m a little bit confused with this two. What would be the safest and most efficient PCIe/NVMe options that anyone can suggest me to purchase and upgrade?
Your help will be much appreciated!
