3.5" to 5.25" bracket and cable set for 2006-2008 MacPro
Looking to add more storage space to your Mac Pro? Need more internal storage than the four hard drive bays allow? Put that extra optical drive bay to good use with the OWC Multi-Mount.
With this set of high-quality powder-coated aluminum brackets, you now have the freedom to install a 3.5" hard drive into the 2nd optical drive tray.
1. To utilize two 3.5″ drives in a Mac Pro, the Multi-Mount must be installed in the lower optical drive bay along with removing the top optical drive for proper clearance. However, using one 2.5″ and one 3.5″ drive with the Multi-Mount allows it to fit into a single optical bay and doesn't require the removal of the upper optical drive.
2. Pre-2013 Mac Pros are limited to a total of two SATA connections in the optical bay. If four SATA devices are installed in the bay, only two may be connected at any given time. This is a limit of the Mac Pro's architecture.
