• iMac Intel 27" EMC 2309 and 2374 Teardown

    Quote from kovacm:

    You can maybe use SATA port multiplier and, from photos, I would say that there is enough space for 2,5" SSD behind GPU heat-pipes ? right ? (although maybe it is not best idea to put SSD close to heatpipes :D)

    I'd like to try the following:

    SATA 1: 120GB OCZ Vertex SSD

    SATA 2-> port multiplier

    1: 120GB OCZ Vertex SSD

    2: SATA to eSATA and thread out cable from iMAC

    Then put the SSDs in software RAID 0 and still have a nice eSATA port coming out...

    Of course this would require the SATA controller to support port multipliers, any idea what chipset it is??
