OWC Multi-Mount®

2.5" to 3.5" bracket set


Looking to add more storage space to your desktop computer? Want the speed of SSD for your desktop too, but don't have a 2.5" hard drive bay to install it into? If you have an available, side-mounting, full-size 3.5" hard drive bay, OWC has you covered with the Multi-Mount.

With this set of high-quality powder-coated aluminum brackets, you now have the freedom to install the drives you want, where you want them!

The 2.5" to 3.5" bracket is designed for use with the 3.5" to 5.25" Multi-Mount bracket or in side-mounting bays where standard, separate SATA connection cables are used. Not for use with 3.5" back plane trays (i.e. Mac Pro sled)

Rating: 5/5 Superb solution to add internal drives to MacPro January 17, 2017 This mount is a slick way to install 2 more internal hard drives to a Mac Pro. As always the devil is in the details such as how many sata spaces are available in your MacPro. Since I need an internal dvd/cd burner I ended up looking for a way to get the second hard drive a sata connection. The Apricorn pcie ssd mount allowed for another 2.5" ssd and provided the needed additional 2nd sata connection. With a 36" sata cable and some careful routing of the cable this review is being posted on a 2008 MacPro 8 core with 7 internal hard drives.

There's enough space for at the top for a 3.5 disk drive. This product fit he bill perfectly and gives me an ssd mounting option also.

Rating: 5/5 Allows full use of all drive bays in a Mac Pro. Easy to install. July 21, 2016 This mount allowed me to put my SSD into the lower “CDROM” bay of my Mac Pro. This meant I had the four top bays free for other drives. I used the other four HDDs in various RAID configurations using SoftRAID.

The mount was easy to install and I can add a 3.5” drive there in the future.

Note: if you do use two drives in the multi-mount, you’ll end up using the data cable that goes to the upper CDROM/DVD drive.

Rating: 5/5 Solid product August 23, 2015 I bought this to replace a cheap Rosewill RDRD-12001I'd purchased via Amazon. You definitely get what you pay for (in both cases). I took advantage of the Multi-Mount to install both an SSD and an HDD in my MacPro. The installation instructions were idiot proof, and the installation went very well as a result. Note I do have an official Apple tear down guide for this box and have had it apart numerous times, so I did have a bit of experience there.

Rating: 5/5 A pro solution January 3, 2015 Wanted to use the 4 bays of my Mac Pro for RAID so adding a fifth SSD disk on the optical bay with the OS and apps made a lot of sense. And it´s been working great. Now I´ve got four blazing fast SSD on Raid and another SSD for start up OS and Apps. This is the perfect configuration for video professionals.

Rating: 5/5 Nicely engineered, does the job brilliantly! November 13, 2014 Bought this to upgrade the drive capacity of my Mac Pro from 4 to 6 drives so that I could set up a dual internal raid configuration. One for work storage and the other for backup. The OWC Multi-Mount® Mfr P/N: MM35A52CMB MacSales.com SKU: OWCMM35A52CMB allowed me to then utilise the spare connections and space below the optical drive to then instal a fast SSD drive to instal the OS and applications on, plus an additional drive to act as a scratch disk/file transfer.

It totally transformed the performance of my Mac Pro as well as the way I worked. If you are looking to add extra drives to your Mac Pro, then this upgrade is one of the best ever!

Rating: 4/5 I should have bought the NewerTech AdaptaDrive August 28, 2014 I should have bought the NewerTech AdaptaDrive for this application. I bought the drive adapter tray thinking it would be long enough, but the 3.5" drive that came out of the iMac had more space between the mounting screws. I just used a couple of small pieces of foam padding to pad the drive top and bottom to keep it from flopping around in the iMac. I only secured the bracket with two screws instead of the normal 4. Had I bought the NewerTech AdaptaDrive I wouldn't have had to 're-engineer' it, heh. No biggie. No fault on OWC's part. I just ordered the wrong thing, but I made it work.

Rating: 5/5 Great quality parts June 24, 2014 I purchased this bracket set to work with the "OWC Multi-Mount: 2.5 to 3.5 / 3.5 to 5.25 Hard Drive adapter bracket set" that I purchased last year to mount a fifth internal hard drive in my Mac Pro when I started swapping out all my HD drives with SSD drives. This fit the other bracket nicely and for awhile I was also able to run the HD drive that was in that upper optical drive bay. These brackets are all excellent quality and fit perfectly in all of my Mac Pro's.

Rating: 4/5 Nicest Mount To Add Value To Mac Pro 3,1 March 7, 2012 Easy installment for 800MHz/early2008 MacPro 3,1. Ideal replacement for a malfunctioned CD-DVD. I replaced my secondary/uneccessary SuperDrive...what was I thinking needing 2 Superdrives!? Anyway, The mount maximizes the value of my Mac Pro having added 2 extra HD "bays": Used it to mount a 3TB HDD and 480SSD.

Rating: 5/5 Good idea- well executed September 20, 2011 I bought this for my 2006 Mac Pro (1.1) so that I could install a SSD into an optical drive bay. This mount is a great idea. I can install two drives in any combination of SSD, hard drive or notebook drive.

The mount is well made and comes with all the mounting screws and cables that you need but most impressive was the excellent instructions. While initially reading them I wondered if all the steps were really necessary but once I started I came to appreciate how good the instructions were.

Also, the shipping took about 24 hrs - amazing.

Rating: 4/5 Not for the plug-n-play crowd March 2, 2011 This is a great kit, with clear instructions and the brackets are beautifully made with powder coated metal. But reaching the spare optical bay isn't something for the faint-of-heart. Essentially, you have to disassemble your Mac Pro down to the logic board, removing

1. Memory cards 2. Two sets of screws at the memory card cage 3. Video card 4. All disk drives and sleds 5. Screw that attaches the processor cage (for which you'll need a long-tang'd Phead driver) 6. Fan cage 7. Optical bay, itself

I got as far as #5 before reflecting on how hard it would be, potentially, to reattach that piece, when I left off.

This is, of course, not OWC's fault. It was an Apple design decision that this part of the box didn't need easy access that causes the problem.

I'd rate this 5 if it were a bit more obvious on the item description what is involved in using the part.
