    Hi everyone, I've reviewed the compatibility list, but want to check.... can I upgrade a single-CPU Mid-2010 Mac Pro 5,1 with a Nehalem Xeon W3565 to a single Westmere X5690? And if so, is that the best CPU I can use in this single-CPU situation (w/o upgrading the backplane)?

    I am looking to upgrade the memory in my Mid 2010 5,1 6-core Mac Pro and I want to get to at least 48gb. If I understand correctly it is best to use 3 sticks (like I am currently doing... 3x4gb) due to the triple channel memory controller. Is there really a noticeable difference in running...

    MP 1,1-5,1 Netflix 4K on Mac Pro 5,1 (Bootcamp)

    Well most of you may know this already, but it is news to me. Netflix app (or EDGE) in bootcamp is able to play in 4K with latest windows 10 and AMD Adrenalin driver. My 5,1 has a RX480 connect to LG 27DU88 via HDMI. No longer need to have Kaby Lake CPU. Another reason to keep your Mac Pro 5,1, LOL.
