    I see the 2 additional sata connectors on the mac pro mother board. Has anyone put 6 drives into their mac pro? If so how did you power it and place the drives. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Also is there a way to do a raid 0 in windows xp for bootcamp to speed up things??

    Interesting spot for the drives but it still doesnt show where he got his power for the 3 drives. I can see two from the molex but did he just use a spliter on one molex to power 2 drives at once or is there a power port just for those 2 extra drives?

    You have 2 molexes in the optical bay area, one being free and one being used by the DVD.
    If you split the free one, and remove the DVD,then you´ll have 3 free for your HDD use.
