I just ordered an m17x R4 and it comes standard with 2x 500gb 7200rpm drives in raid 0.

I wanted to pull those out and go with this config:

Drive "0" (boot: Windows/Apps):

Drive 1 (Storage):

The only thing is I can't find the spec on the height of the drive bay on an m17x R4 to see if the Western Digital will fit.

Does anyone have an R4 revision M17x that could measure it and see how many MM of height there is?

The Western Digital is 15mm

I think the max is 12mm, and with that it barely fits. So, with the 2TB WD 15mm you will not be able to get the bottom cover on.
