My Mac Pro is from 2009, was a 4,1 with the 3.33GHz Quad, now it's got the 5,1 firmware with W3680 6-core 3.33GHz CPU. No heat issues whatsoever no matter how long I render HD video. Stays cool when not working hard.If the firmware is flashed to 5,1 can the 2.66 cpu be upgraded to the W3680 Xeon 3.33?
I read somewhere that the chipset in the 2009 macpro4,1 lacked some sort of stepping feature that the W3680 uses..
The computer I'm thinking about is a Mac Pro 2.66GHz Two Dual Core Xeon. - Apple Computer MA356LL/A.
Will this computer upgrade to Hex?
