OWC launches 2.5", 3.5" brackets for Mac Pros, PowerMacs

07/23, 5:45pm

Brackets install smaller drives in optical bays

Other World Computing has launched new Multi-Mount hard disk mounting kits for Mac Pros and PowerMacs. The new brackets are custom engineered and use hard rubber dampers, reducing noise and vibration, between the bracketed drives and the Mac case. They are made of high-grade aluminum and designed to fit smaller drives into the Mac's spare optical 5.25-inch bays, such as a 3.5-inch drive into a 5.25-inch bay. OWC is launching seven different brackets, with three of the brackets specific to Mac Pros. The two Mac Pro kits come with power and SATA cables. With the kits, users can add a 2.5-inch drive -- or SSD -- to a 3.5-inch bay, or a pair of 2.5- or 3.5-inch drives in a 5.25-inch bay.

Apple is ending most or all of its support for a host of older Macs, according to a memo issued to Apple Authorized Service Providers this week.

As of March 17th, no support of any kind will be available for the obsolete systems, including replacement parts.
