MaxConnect enables 8-drive RAID in 2008 Mac Pro

MaxConnect for Mac Pro 2K8

MaxUpgrades today unveiled the MaxConnect SATA mounting solution for the 2008 Mac Pro, giving users the option to install up to eight internal SATA drives. The mounting kit enables users to install hard drives where the optical drives usually reside, creating a maximum throughput of 600MB per second when used in a RAID configuration. The kit includes a mounting bracket, power cables, and SATA cables, and is selling for $130 from MaxUpgrades' website.

The kit is scalable, allowing users to keep the optical drive in their systems while only adding one or two drives. This can be done without adding hardware to the system, while using the full eight-drive configuration requires an extra SATA controller card. Users can take advantage of an eight-drive configuration without an extra card by substituting two of the SATA drives for IDE.
