It is possible if you use SATA SSD. However, I recommend get read from Optane and buy a NVMe SSD (NVMe SSD can be installed in the same M.2 slot, instead Optane). The NVMe SSD are now not so expensive. You may use the SSD for Windows and programs and keep your HDD for data storage.
Yea, there are SSD products out there that make Optane look like the so-so product that it is. So-so performance with horrid fragility, what a combination!
