Where is the perfect place for an Operating System-SSD?

Text:

My Question is stated above and refers specifically to the MacBook Pro 15 inch mid-2010 model.

My plan is to have the SSD Mac OS X installed on it, and a partition with a Windows-OS.

The second thing is that I want to keep my normal HDD for data-saving purposes.

I have been on several websites and Google search results but I still do not have a clue, where inside this MacBook Pro model the most convenient place for a SSD is.

Somewhere I heard, having the Operation System-Disk, in my case the SSD, in an optical bay, will cause the Mac to crash, somewhere else I heard the SATA Connector for the SuperDrive is not that fast for having a SSD connected with it.

And again I also heard that moving the standard HDD to the optical bay will cause strange sounds coming out inside the Macbook or that it depends on the MacBook model.

Please, if somebody already has experiences on this and hopefully with the same device, I would be very glad if someone helped me.

Thanks!
