    Need some advice about moving my current config to an iMac-

    I currently have a Mac Pro with:

    -internal 1TB hard drive for user folder
    -PCIe SSD (startup drive and Lightroom catalog)
    -Drobo 5D (hard drives for backup and additional storage (iTunes library, etc.))
    -internal Raid 0 with 2 hard drives (Lightroom images)

    I am switching to an iMac 5K with SSD.
    -I was going to put the PCIe SSD in an OWC Helios 2 case and connect with T2.
    -The Drobo can connect via T1 or USB3.
    -I was going put the RAID drives in an OWC Elite Pro Dual but that's only T1 or USB3. Not sure if I should get a box that uses T2. (Or just transfer what's on those drives to the Drobo.)

    For two drive sin RAID 0 you won't get any better performance in a Thunderbolt 2 enclosure, so the Elite Pro Dual would be fine.
