Can I install a blade SSD in my HDD-model iMac?

(CPU - 6-core i5; RAM - 8 GB; GPU - radeon pro 560X - 4 GB)

Hello! I have an iMac (specs screenshot above), I would like to upgrade it (CPU (i9-9900), RAM (32 or 64 GB)) and notice HDD to SSD. When I started to crash in this process, I had questions:

1. Do I have this slot for Blade SSD? (My iMac has Fusion Drive 1.03 TB installed)

2. Can I solder a socket (the photo above, this photo is not mine) for the Blade SSD and will it work?

Sadly, its a bit more than a connector there are a few other components needed as well.

Time to look for a used Fusion drive'd system and then swap out the CPU with yours if you have the more powerful version and add the blade SSD. Or just get a replacement logic board like: 21.5" iMac Retina 4K Logic Board 3.2GHz i7, SSD, Vega 4GB

but my iMac had Fusion Drive 1 Tb + 32 Gb. Can i install blade ssd?

@Петр Бионенко - If you bought a Fusion Drive'd system then you have both the SATA & Apples custom PCIe/NVMe driver connectors!

Here's the guide you'll need to follow iMac Intel 21.5" Retina 4K Display (2017) Blade SSD Replacement to swap it out, I strongly recommend you stick with either an Apple blade SSD or go with OWC's

You could also just replace the SATA HDD with a SSD drive as well (disabling the small blade SSD as it gets in the way)

I recommend OWC,

I upgraded my 2012 Macbook pro, 2009 Mac pro with there parts,

Still a beast
