I have a mac mini late 2014, I do not want to open it not to lose the warranty. so I decided that I will use my ssd it with an external case USB3.

Will there be any difference in performance / very noticeable throughput?

    SATA 3 has a speed of 6 Gbits per second. USB 3 has a speed of 5 Gbit/s. Both are unlikely to achieve those speeds. Your SSD has a greater chance of reaching those speeds then a traditional mechanical HDD
