    Anybody successfully bsel (333fsb --> 400fsb) modified their x5470's for 4.0ghz effective clock speed? Can't find anybody having done so on these CMP's, I will be doing this mod in the near future.

    The only X5470 I have seen are SLBBF. As far as I have found no SLB-- chips work in a 3,1 Mac Pro. Only SLA-- processors work.
    The best one you can get that might work is the X5460 SLANP 3.16ghz quad.

    Thanks, I actually had no idea that it wasn't on the CPU support list. I suppose x5460's BSEL @ 3.8ghz is the next best thing.
