Hi there, first post here. I would like to create a RAID0 SSD set from a couple OWC Mercury Pro RE's. My best option at this stage is put them in the optical drive bays of my 3.3 6core 2010 as I haven't used an optical drive in well over a year. I've read that an adapter isn't needed for the lower optical bay, and I'm wondering if one is really essential for the top optical bay? The other question I had was I wondered if I used a dual adapter and placed both ssd's in the lower optical bay, will the sata and power leads from the upper optical bay reach to the lower bay? That way I could leave the optical drive in but just have it disconnected. Perhaps there are some sata and power extension leads that would be reliable enough? Thanks, appreciate your thoughts.
