    Refurbished 2009 8 core 2.26 arrived yesterday. Just did the firmware update to make it a 5,1. Gonna drop a pair of x5670's or higher in & enjoy the power & stability.

    So looking forward to making music on this machine. Peace :)

    For the 2009 model, get the x5690 straight away if possible (they are not that expensive now). It's not fun to upgrade those processors if they are not de-lidded. IMO, get the most out of it from a single upgrade is a better choice on this particular CPU upgrade.
