Why is the SSD behave so poorly in the upper bay

Текст:

hi there,

I wanted to replace my stock 1TB hdd (Mac Mini 2012, i7) to dual drive: HDD + SSD. When both mounted in the mini OSX wanted to format them into a fusion drive, which was not what I wanted. Therefore I unplugged the HDD and only left the SSD in an upper bay (farther from the bottom opening).

I had several problems formatting it. Installing the system took around 9 hours, after each reboot it took several mins to get rid of the "prohibition sign". Finally decided to install the yosemite using mini in target mode, then installation was a breeze.

But after booting up the Mini with this installed system i took about 15 minutes to boot. I could move mouse, drag windows but each action, each click that involved disk operations caused a minute of the "beach ball".

I decided to put the same drive, with the same system installed, onto the lower bay - the one closer to the mac mini bottom case. It launched like a rocket, system starts within 10 seconds, and is really fast.

QUESTION:

Why is this SSD so slow in the upper bay and behaves fine in the lower one? Is it possible, that the sata cable is damaged in some way? I dod not use it before. The disk, however, behaved rather normally when I used it with target mode.

Can I try to install the HDD now in the upper bay with that cable and expect it to work fine? I am little afraid mounting and dismounting the mini back and forth. Or better leave it like this, while everything is working fine?

=== Update (09/17/2015) ===

Thank you all for the replies;

DAN:  really I would like to have both the SSD and the HDD connected internally in the MINI, provided that that does not slow down the machine. I mainly use Logic Pro for music creation, second drive could serve as backup and data bank then. Now I just have the HDD connected via USB 3, which is also fine. The screenshots:

hi there,

I wanted to replace my stock 1TB hdd (Mac Mini 2012, i7) to dual drive: HDD + SSD. When both mounted in the mini OSX wanted to format them into a fusion drive, which was not what I wanted. Therefore I unplugged the HDD and only left the SSD in an upper bay (farther from the bottom opening).

I had several problems formatting it. Installing the system took around 9 hours, after each reboot it took several mins to get rid of the "prohibition sign". Finally decided to install the yosemite using mini in target mode, then installation was a breeze.

But after booting up the Mini with this installed system i took about 15 minutes to boot. I could move mouse, drag windows but each action, each click that involved disk operations caused a minute of the "beach ball".

I decided to put the same drive, with the same system installed, onto the lower bay - the one closer to the mac mini bottom case. It launched like a rocket, system starts within 10 seconds, and is really fast.

QUESTION:

Why is this SSD so slow in the upper bay and behaves fine in the lower one? Is it possible, that the sata cable is damaged in some way? I dod not use it before. The disk, however, behaved rather normally when I used it with target mode.

Can I try to install the HDD now in the upper bay with that cable and expect it to work fine? I am little afraid mounting and dismounting the mini back and forth. Or better leave it like this, while everything is working fine?

=== Update (09/17/2015) ===

Thank you all for the replies;

DAN:  really I would like to have both the SSD and the HDD connected internally in the MINI, provided that that does not slow down the machine. I mainly use Logic Pro for music creation, second drive could serve as backup and data bank then. Now I just have the HDD connected via USB 3, which is also fine. The screenshots:
