can i put in 2 plus more? or just 2?
I don't see why not!
yuppers… you can put in 4 if you like! 6 TB is currently Mac Pro's maximum storage. but you can always hold a hard drive in the lower optical drive bay and use one of the free SATA ports on the mobo totalling the storage to 7.5 TB! use Google to find a guide on how to do this.
You can even install 8 of them using a kit offered by Maxupgrades.com. An additional HDD controller would be required of course.
RAID 0 stripe them for best performance!
Meh... I like having some redundancy, so lean toward RAID 5. Toss in an ARC-1680ix series controller, and watch 'em scream.
Now if I could only afford to use Seagate 15K.6 SAS drives,....
