[Jeremy Garchow] "Drives in the older Mac pro were typically less then 1TB. "

You are talking about stock from Apple, not after market upgrades. I haven't actually tested whether the power supplies would handle it, but a 2012 MP should be able to easily take 4 x 4TB, plus 1 or 2 SSDs up to 4TB each. You can get spinning disc drives up to 14TB these days, so in theory up to 4 x 14TB in an older tower, plus the SSDs. Again, the caveat being the power supply. I have personally run 2009 towers with 2 x 1TB SSDs, plus 2 x 2TB 7200RPM drives.

So yes, if this tower could take 4 x 14TB 7200 RPM drives, that would be great. But it doesn't look like that's possible.
