What's the largest capacity and fastest spanning HDD out there that will fit into the 2012 Mac mini? I guess that's in the 9.5mm or under format. I don't believe the 12.5mm drives fit, right? Especially if you are using one the data doubler kits from OWC. Or even in the standard drive cage.

I think the 1.5TB HGST Travelstar 5K1500 (#0J28001) is the current king at 9.5mm. It only spins at 5400 RPM though.

I would just search OWC or Newegg for "2.5" 7200rpm hard drive" and see what they got....
