Feb 7, 2012, 09:25 AM
Just seeing a few posts about processor upgrades on various mac pros.

I've had mine 3 years now, the Apple Care has run out.
I use it mainly for Logic Pro...and some gaming under bootcamp.

The last project I mixed pretty much maxed out my Mac, which was a pain.

I'm just wondering whether I can upgrade the processor?

If so - what to?

This is my system spec..
