    Hi all,
    I currently have a 27" Late 2015 iMac.
    I have a 2tb Fusion Drive (installed) + Samsung 850 Evo 2tb (Laying around)

    What would be the best configuration for speed in the imac?
    1. Put Samsung SSD in and use as boot.
    2. Make a Flash / SSD fusion if possible?
    3. RAID the Flash / SSD together somehow?

    Will the SATA connector speed limit the Samsung so much that it's not even worth putting inside?
    I really don't want an external thunderbolt option as it seems expensive and I'm already shuffling things only having the x2 Thunderbolt ports.
