Support for SSD and HDD in NUC5I3RYH at same time?

Hey, since the wording on the site has me confused I'd like to ask if it's possible to install both an M.2 SSD and a 2.5" HDD in the NUC5I3RYH?

More specifically I'm looking to install the Samsung EVO M.2 120GB SSD and the Samsung Spinpoint M9T 2TB ST2000LM003.

Thanks in advance!

Hello spykr,

Thank you for joining the Intel communities.

You can install both the M.2 and 2.5" Drive; the unit has space for both products so you could install the operating system in the M.2 and use the 2.5" Drive for backup, or as you wish.

Also, you can see the M.2 and 2.5" SSD we have tested with this unit at the following link:

Please note: If you choose to go with a different 2.5" drive, the NUC5I3RYH can accomodate a 2.5" drive thickness of maximum 9.5 mm. The proposed 2.5" HDD is at this thickness, but some drives are thicker. You may have already made your purchase, but this bit could be useful for future user reference.
