Hey I’ve built an video editing rig hackintosher, love it. Partspicker list here: https://pcpartpicker.com/user/Capcadet05/saved/PWWcYJ. I know 500gb wasn’t enough memory but I couldn’t resist NVme evo 970. The compromise I made was a back up external HDD for project media (approaching 300 gb). I am worried about that external HDD going bad if I offload media to that HDD exclusively. So I’m thinking about getting a cheap 7200 rpm 2 TB HDD. I currently have the eco 970 with Mac OS and another Samsung 860 with the windows OS. I’m pretty sure I’ve got them running on pcie in the bios. My question is can I just plug in a sata drive and expect it to work fine when the other two are running on PCIE? My intent would be to store media on the 2 tb HdD then move the working media for current editing to the SSD 970. Then my backup catch all in case the drive fails is my external HD passport drive which is just a time machine backup of all drives.
