    Hi, iam looking at a 2008 (late) mac pro, single 2.8ghz cpu and iam just wondering how to tell if it has 2 sockets, so i can upgrade to 8 cores lateron. I dont have access to the machine.

    Are all 2008 mac pros dual socket capable?

    Judging from previous threads on here, the answer is yes, but you might need to buy the heat sink.
