Has anyone tried using some of the latest HDDs in their Mac Pros?

I've read past threads here with some people having issues with 8TB hard drives mounting properly. I haven't had any issue with 6TB Black or 8TB Red Pro drives.

Any insight would be appreciated!

Looking for use internally at the moment.

I have 64TB externally between several external backups. And another 24TB internally at the moment.

I try to get the largest drives I can so I can consolidate these arrays over time.

Don’t the larger drives have issues lining up with the holes on the drive sleds? I’m sure they work fine, but having them fit is another animal.

Thought I had read that on here in another thread.

Thanks guys! Yes, I currently have the OWC sleds that accommodate these drives for mounting. Just glad to know people are having success with 12TB drives.
