    Thanks for your answer, I am fighting with dell support in Europe that says it can t be done and you have to choose between either 3 m. 2 pcie or 1 hdd 2.5. Which I said to the support in a non sens and they need to provide me the parts to connect the 2.5 hdd.
    I ll tell you how it goes but the European support done online in morrocco isn't efficient at all

    As far as the 7530's M.2 ports are concerned, all three support NVMe, SATA and Optane drives.

    I'm using the port that is right next to the one that came with a M.2 drive installed. Of the two that are together, it is the one that is closer to the battery, I think. It shouldn't really matter, SATA is supposed to work with any of the slots and I haven't heard anything to the contrary from people who have tried it.

    Oh hey there man! How is it going? Sorry I missed your reply, been busy lately. Nice, I was actually thinking about it recently. That beast was the best laptop I've even owned. So much power, great cooling. Sigh, they just don't make such good stuff anymore. I'm still on the fence, not sure what to get.
    What's your main machine nowadays?

    Thanks for the information regarding RAID, but let me ask some questions:
    1. What did you experien regarding the difference in performance between disk configuration version
    a. If 1 disk is installed (NO RAID obviously)
    b. 3 disk in RAID-0 (with Intel RST).

    Why I am asking: because I've just bought a 7730 (with 1 x 256 GB NVMe SSD). Then I replaced this ssd with two Samsung PRO 970 1 TB put in slots 3 and 4 and organized a RAID-0 with Intel RST. I measured benchmark with CrystalDiskMark6 and realized that the RAID-0 performs slower then a single disk. I expected that the RAID-0 will produce twice better then the single disk. My older machine was Dell Precision M6400C and when I put in this machine 2 (SATA) SSD and organized RAID-0, the result was twice quicker disk performance then using 1 single disk.
