Hi, I have a 3.5 inch seagate constellation es.2 3tb sas hdd and am looking to use it in a dell precision t5600. Looking at the specs it mentions 2.5in SAS HD’s but not 3.5. Will I be able to use this 3.5 inch size in this machine?

It will accomodate both 3.5-inch & 2.5-inch drives, but for SAS drive it has to be 2.5-inch. From Dell specs sheet:


Internally accessible drive bays Two 3.5-inch hard drive bays – supporting two 3.5-inch SATA or two 2.5-inch SATA/SAS drives (with 2.5-inch caddies)
