Late 2011 13" MBP with SSD in Optical Bay
I am swapping out my superdrive with a SATA cradle + SSD.
Now, I know that all the SATA ports are 6Gbps so is this configuration permissible?
I am concerned that my 1TB WD Blue WD10TPVT is 12.5mm tall and will not fit the SATA cradle in the optical bay.

put your SSD into the main bay so you get SATAIII speed.
Is the 1TB HDD 3.5in or 2.5in?
Optibay only supports laptop sized HDD/SSD (2.5in) and not desktop size HDDs(3.5in).
I just googled it and yes, it is a 2.5in so it fits.
17" MacBook Pro (Early 2011), 2.2GHz i7-2720QM, 16GB RAM, 128GB SSD+1TB HDD@5400rpm
11" MacBook Air (Mid 2013), 1.7GHz i7-4650U, 8GB RAM, 512GB Flash

As far as I know the late 2011 MBP get Sata III in the Optical Bay as well though so there doesn't appear to be an obstacle to leaving the WD HDD in place in the HD spot and sticking the SSD in the location of the removed optical drive.
Please correct if wrong.
