You can use a caddy for this.

I see these caddys involve taking parts off the original optical drive slot for complete installation. Will this caddy work if my current ultrabay is a second GPU? I don't game much. Putting a second harddrive in would be more useful and I like that price.

Re: Y510P 59373392: SSD upgrade via UltraBay?

Does anyone have the answer to what the read/write speeds are with an SSD and caddy via the ultra bay? Would it be be as fast as using an SSD in an enclosure with USB 3, or would the ultrabay route be faster or slower?

 

I want to add two SSD drives, one replacing the current 5400 rpm, and one hopefully by the ultrabay if it's fast enough, in order to record audio files to it. Otheriwse I'll just stick with an external drive via USB 3.

Re: Y510P 59373392: SSD upgrade via UltraBay?

hi there,

 

for my y510p I used an ultrabay hdd caddy along with a Samsung 840 pro ssd, both cappable of supporting Sata 3 (6Gb/s), but the Intel Manager Software reports the ultrabay slot as only 3 Gb/s. Although a ssd benchmark tool confirmed the speed as only about 200 MB/s. I found no way to set the speed, neither in BIOS or somewhere else.

 

Used OS is Win7 pro 64.

 

 

Question: Is the ultrabay port only Sata 2 or is there a chance to get the full speed out of the second ssd?

I have the 24GB SSD installed and so I want to know if I can upgrade with that to a 240GB SSD and if so will I have to re-install windows?

Re: Y510P 59373392: SSD upgrade via UltraBay?

Hey !   Thanks so much for the info. It's of BIG help. I have my Y51p for a couple of months now and want to upgrade with an SSD.

I'm going to go with moving my current hybrid drive to the UltraBay with a caddy and place an SSD in it's place.

The SSD that I wanted to get is the Samsung 840 Evo Basic which has a SATA 3 connection. Can you please let me know if this is compatible and also if it a good choice of hardware or I should go with something else.

Thanks again for the help.

 

Kind Regards

Re: Y510P 59373392: SSD upgrade via UltraBay?

Ok for all of you:

1. The ultrabay is PCI Express 3.0 so YES you can get SATA 3  6G/s on that

Number of devicesSpeed

One device each on each endpoint of each connection. PCI Express switches can create multiple endpoints out of one endpoint to allow sharing one endpoint with multiple devices.

Per lane (each direction):

  • v1.x: 250 MB/s (2.5 GT/s)
  • v2.x: 500 MB/s (5 GT/s)
  • v3.0: 985 MB/s (8 GT/s)
  • v4.0: 1969 MB/s (16 GT/s)

So, a 16-lane slot (each direction):

  • v1.x: 4 GB/s (40 GT/s)
  • v2.x: 8 GB/s (80 GT/s)
  • v3.0: 15.75 GB/s (128 GT/s)
  • v4.0: 31.51 GB/s (256 GT/s)

 Just to be sure you get me right it`s PCIe 3.0 with x8 lanes

2. If you happen to have m.2 ngff slot on the MB ( if you have a cache, not SSHD you 100% have)

you can put that m.2 ngff SSD with format 22mm x 42mm (it`s not made for bigger format but you could try and squeez a bigger one) and make it a boot drive. ( the curent max on 2242 SSD for now is 128GB dye to it`s limited space )

3. Yes you can change the current HDD or Hybrid you have with almost every SSDs on the market today or another HDD or Hybrid. They are all compatible.

 

I hope I answered all of your questions Smiley Happy
