Third Drive Kit


The Third Drive Bracket Kit helps you add a third hard drive. It is compatible with both iResolved brackets and the Dell designed brackets! Click here for the compatibility list.

Note: You may need to add a PCI controller card and buy an additional IDE cable. Neither ship with this kit.

U.S. Patent Pending



More Information:

The third drive kit is a new product for 2006 and has been tested to work with many of the Dell Dimension systems. As with any new component, additional power will be consumed and heat released into the case. In most cases, this should not be an issue, but if you are concerned, please read the results of the heat testing here. Please let me know if you have any other questions by emailing
