Mac Pro 2008 Hard Drive Sled for "New" Mounting Screw Configuration

Hello Tom's Hardware Gurus:

I learned the hard way that many of the jumbo (6TB+) internal drives have a "new" mounting screw-hole configuration.

They are not compatible with the hard drive "sleds" for my trusty 2008 Mac Pro, and I also learned the hard way that >2008, the hard drive sleds for Mac Pros are different.

If I hope to put a jumbo drive into my ancient 2008 Mac Pro, what is the workaround (and I don't want to use a drive adapter and put it in the optical drive slot).

Thank you!
