    Hey guys, if I were to buy with the base 256gb ssd rimac and open it up, could I add in a normal sata ssd in the HDD bay in addition to the pcie ssd?

    I have done this on a 2012 that came with a fusion drive, not sure if the hdd bay is accessible on the ssd only config, wouldn't be surprised if apple blocked it somehow.

    Any help is appreciated, just waiting in this info to make my choice what drive config and order!

    It looks like it theoretically possible to do it, but you would have to source the apple cable needed as it doesn't come with one in the SSD only version. Seems like an awful lot of work and risk with little return. Why not just use an external TB2 drive?

    Connect the second SSD via USB3 or thunderbolt, and save yourself A LOT of trouble...
