OWC Deals: 4TB and 6TB Hard Drives, 32GB Memory for Mac Pro 2009-2012
For 2009-2012 Mac Pro, MPG recommends going to 48GB for 4/6 core machines, and 96GB for 8/12 core machines, rather than mixing and matching.
Due to some unusual circumstances, OWC memory for Mac Pro has dropped a lot in price, but this is likely to be a short-term thing:
Big price drop on memory for 2009-2012 Mac Pro: 32GB for under $200!
Not everyone needs 8TB hard drives which MPG is soon to test.
These drives can be used in the older Mac Pro internally, or can be used as external storage or backups in a NewerTech Voyager or OWC external USB3 enclosure or in an OWC Thunderbay 4. And similar.
Why buy drives at OWC? OWC adds-on a 90-day *replacement* warranty, meaning that a problem drive will be replaced with a NEW drive within 90 days. This is a BIG DEAL if you are making a RAID or depending on the drives; sending a drive in for warranty essentially means another one has to be purchased to fill the hole—not so with this OWC 90-day guarantee.
TIP: use DiskTester fill-volume to test/verify new hard drives.
