    The problem is, depending on the OS version your are running, you probably won't be able to recognize anything larger than 2.2TB.  I have an Xserve 2,1 and I can't get anything larger than 2.2 TB yet.  I can't even partition 1Tb and 2TB on a 3TB drive.  WD and Seagate no go.  My understanding it is a hardware limitation.  My MacPro has no issues recognizing any size drive.
