60GB OWC 6G SSD
and OWC Accelsior S

Mac / PC / PCIe
Mercury Electra® 6G and Accelsior S
An SSD for your PCIe Slot
Give your Mac Pro tower or PC a 6G performance boost
The OWC 6G SSD and OWC Accelsior S DIY bundle is the simple solution to add a high speed SATA 6G drive to PCs or silver Mac Pro towers otherwise restricted to 3G architecture. Combined with the high-performance Mercury Electra SSD, Accelsior S brings cutting edge 6G performance to your SATA 3G system.
High-performance storage
Faster startup and quick response times with over 500MB/s peak sustained data rates, the Mercury Electra 6G SSD line delivers unbeatable performance with 100X greater data protection than enterprise class Hard Disk Drives, and RAISE technology for RAID like data protection and reliability. And it's backed by a 3 Year OWC SSD Limited Warranty.
Internal storage expansion at lightning speed
With more than 500 MB/s of throughput, the Accelsior S dual-lane PCIe 2.0 card delivers flexible storage expansion – with a speed boost – to your Mac or PC. Accelsior S is the perfect complement to OWC's Mercury family of high-performance SSD's, allowing up to an extra 1TB of fast storage expansion.

With no drivers or extra software needed, upgrading your Mac Pro or PC tower with a Mercury Extreme Pro and Accelsior S is a breeze.

Release Candidate (RC) firmware set

There are two kinds of firmware for SSDs Mass Production (MP) and Release Candidate (RC). Prior to an MP firmware release, there are beta firmware releases and an RC firmware release. Often, the RC is the same as the MP release, however there can be small changes and bug fixes made between the two. OWC has evaluated the RC for the 6Gb/s SandForce 2281 Processor and found it to be stable with no issues reported during our testing. However, as with any evolutionary product, issues may surface as different usages and configurations are employed and it is important to understand that there will be further updates and revisions.

Since no firmware update is currently offered for the OWC Mercury EXTREME Pro 6G SSD, no update page exists. To see the typical steps involved with a self performed field firmware update, please visit our 3Gb/s product update page at: http://eshop.macsales.com/Customized_Pages/Framework.cfm?page=sf_firmware.html

It is important to note that the current firmware update tool requires the use of Windows XP/Vista/7. OWC is currently working on a Mac OS based update tool, but we do not have an exact availability date.

  1. 1GB = 1,000,000,000 bytes. Total accessible capacity varies depending upon operating environment (typically 5-10% less). The actual total capacity will depend on your own defined file settings/preferences. 
  2. In terms of standard gigabytes, 1GiB ≈ 1.074GB and refers to the actual formatted capacity of shown under Mac OS 10.5 or earlier and Microsoft Windows OS.
  3. Specific application environments such as temperature and duty cycle will affect the overall reliability.
  4. Specifications provided by SandForce.
  5. Temperature reporting is currently an unsupported feature because due to the operating characteristics of SSDs, it is highly unlikely one would ever exceed an OWC Mercury SSD's stated operating temperature ceiling of 158F/70C. However, we are looking into supporting this feature in the future via a firmware update. Firmware updates can be found here: http://eshop.macsales.com/tech_center/OWC/SSD.

Note about throughput:
  • PC Throughput:
    • PCIe 2.0 x4 slot or better is required. Use of a PCIe 1.0 x4 slot will reduce performance.
  • Mac Pro Throughput:
    • 2009-2010 Mac Pro. Installing Accelsior S into any open x4 or x16 PCIe 2.0 slot will deliver full throughput
    • 2008 Mac Pro. These models have two x16 PCIe 2.0 slots, which enable Acceslsior S to deliver full throughput. Installing Accelsior S into of the two x4 PCIe 1.0 slots will result in Accelsior S being addressed as a gen one, one-lane card with performance limited to real world 190-200MB/s data rates.
    • 2006-2007 Mac Pro. These models utilize PCIe 1.0 slot which cannot be configured (even with the Expansion Utility in OS X) to address Accelsior S as anything but as a first generation one-lane card. As a result, Accelsior S performance will be limited to 190-200MB/s data rates. If maximum data rate speedis desired, we recommend the installation of a 2.5" OWC Mercury SSD in an open Mac Pro drive bay.

Rating: 5/5 Easy install, works as a fast pci boot drive for a 2008 Mac Pro July 4, 2020 I had it put together and installed within 10 minutes. You do have to screw the drive to the pci board which is easy. Once in I did a clone from my original 2TB Mercury SSD in my 2008 Mac Pro drive bay to this Extreme Pro 6G, I was able to boot from this faster SSD on the pci card located in slot 2 (16x) pci bay. Do not put it into slot 3 or 4 in a 2008 Mac Pro. It will work but a a speed slower than the original SATA III drive bays. Speed increased from about 275 Mb/s to 510 Mb/s according to Blackmagic speed disk test. I can now actually edit 4K video projects on this 12 year old Mac.

Rating: 5/5 Great combo June 27, 2019 I purchased the 480GB Pro 6G SSD and Accelsior S adapter into my 2010 Mac Pro 3.46GHz 12-core, it was easy to install and the speed benefit was instantly recognized. Previously, I was running an SSD from the drive bay not realizing that the SATA 6Gbps capability of the SSD is reduced to SATA 3Gbps speeds. With the Accelsior S adapter the 6Gbps speeds were achieved and the performance increase allows my 2010 MacPro to outperform my fully loaded 2018 iMac 18,3 (i7-7700K). Booting into MacOS takes about 5 seconds and overall system response time is almost instant.

Rating: 5/5 my mid-2010 Mac Pro is flying now... November 5, 2018 I was a little nervous about this (both the install and the technology, which I was too lazy to read about). I've had really good luck with OWC, though, so I gave it a shot.

**big** improvement over the same SSD in one of the normal drive slots.

Only weird thing is that the system sees it as an extrnal drive.

The Accelsior S really, really sped up my old mac, I am now running Mojave 10.14 (through a 3rd party patch) and the computer feels as good as new.

I highly recommend Mac Sales and commend them and OWC for coming up with such innovative products that extend the life of MAC Desktop and Laptop computers.

Rating: 5/5 Worked great on Dell PE R710 September 30, 2018 I was looking for a solution to get maximum out of dell PowerEdge R710 server. Onboard SATA ports only support ATA/IDE mode and SSD drive was getting 200 MBPS read write speeds. With this card AHCI is enabled and I got 530 MBPS read write and 56000 IOPS for read and write. I am using 1 TB samsung 850 ssd drive as boot drive on this card. One thing I did was I removed dell perc 6 card from the riser and updated bios to latest version 6.6.0 I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking to utilize old r710 servers for ssd drives.

Rating: 5/5 Bringing back to speed Mac Pro Early 2008 (3,1) June 29, 2018 With the new Mac Pro only available in 2019, I decided to take the plunge and upgrade once more my 10-year old faithful Mac Pro, by adding 32GB of memory (and keeping 8GB of the previous 16GB to total 40GB) and installing a PCIe SSD drive. This allowed to install the OS (OSX El Capitan is the last update possible on this machine) and apps on the SSD and keep all user files on the original Macintosh HDD. After one failed attempt to do the configuration myself, I redid the process successfully exactly as explained in OWC's Youtube video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ou-heXnkPP4) except I did not clean/delete any system files or apps from the HDD so to keep it as a backup bootable for safety. The total boot time is now 2 minutes instead of 20. I also created a FCPX "scratch library" on the SSD that speeds up performance tremendously as FCPX constantly refreshes projects in the library during editing; then when finished I move the project (in FCPX) to the original HDD library. All other apps of course load and execute much faster. Perfect way to keep an old Mac Pro going.
