Also consider...it's gonna be a pain in the butt to get it in & out of the optical bay if you wanted to remove it.

If you have two open HD bays...I would just install it in there. I would only install an HD or SSD in an optical bay as a last resort (if everything else was full).

Ok, so there are no performance benefits to installing it in the optical drive, that's what I needed to know so I'll just install it in my first bay.

Thanks for your input!!
