Dual drive kit DIY Fusion Drive SSD placement upper or lower bay

Hello,

I want to utilize the OWC dual drive kit to install a SSD in my late 2012 mac mini. I intend to format the two drives as a core storage volume to create a DIY Fusion Drive. Is there a recommended position for the SSD?

I have heard that some have experienced issues in models that did not ship with a fusion drive option, 2012 and earlier. Since my machine is a late 2012 and was available to purchase with a fusion drive, can I place the SSD in the upper bay, or should I swap the HHD from the lower bay and replace with the SSD?

Thanks!

It doesn't matter which bay has the SSD. Just make sure your firmware is upto date before you put it in.
