Question Can I use my iMac as a monitor?

Is it possible to use an iMac as a monitor for the Corsair one? Do I need some adapters?

This is my computer

No.

If I remember correctly the newer imacs only do target display mode through their thunderbolt connection. So no, mainly because the C1 does not have thunderbolt, but also because no Nvidia/AMD discrete GPU's output to thunderbolt either...

You would also not get g-sync, but that's relatively minor.

I did some digging and unfortunately it looks like your iMac (late 2015 retina 4k) doesn't actually support Target Display Mode in the first place, even over TB. Which is a shame since that was a great feature to have on the older models which had perfectly fine screens.
