    I don't think that your macpro has a second CPU socket. If you want 2 processors, then you must purchase a compatable CPU board with 2 sockets.

    W3565 is designed for single socket boards. It cannot be paired with another processor.

    Yes. Don't forget you will also need two new heatsinks and even used these are ridiculously expensive.

    You can get geek bench 15000+ from a W3680 or 3690 single CPU drop-in upgrade.
