I was wondering if it is possible to remove the 2nd chip of the 8 core machine, but keep the heat sink. Then, sell the chip for $700+ bucks on e-bay. You would more than make up the $500 extra you spent to get the 8-core system, and you could still buy the chip again later, when prices have dropped or your need for 8 cores has increased. Would the 8 core processor minus the 2nd chip work ok? Would you need to change settings in EFI or anything like that to make it work? Thanks.
