10 hard drives in Power Mac G5

If you want to put ten hard drives in your Power Mac G5 and have four terabytes of drive space on one RAID, this mod is right for you.
If you want to put ten hard drives in your Power Mac G5 and have four terabytes of drive space on one RAID, this mod is right for you.

Requirements

* Power Mac G5

* 10 SATA hard drives

* RocketRAID 1820A

* Two empty or non-full-length PCI slots

Install your RocketRAID into any available PCI slot. *If you do not have two empty or non-full-length PCI slots after installing this card, you will only be able to have nine hard drives in your Power Mac.

* Four hard drives will be in front of the main processor fans

* Two will go above the optical drive, two will go in the hard drive bay

* Two will go in the PCI slot area.

If you have any full-length PCI cards it is best to move them to the top PCI slots, unless you have a full-length AGP card. If you do, put the full-length PCI cards in the bottom slots, and find some way to mount the hard drives to the piece of metal above the slots. Two can simply be placed above the optical drive, although you can screw them in if you want. Four more will go in front of the main processor fans, and if you only want nine hard drives, you can use a SwiftData 200, as shown.
