    Are there any good sources to purchase a dual processor tray for the Mac Pro 4,1? I see the single processor trays on Ebay. I would like to purchase one without the processors so I can add my own.

    I see three suppliers on eBay who have already fitted X5690s on the board but they are also charging an installation and support fee.

    Does anyone make a water cooled compatible replacement for the Mac Pro heat sinks? Or even a better fully compatible heat sink than the Apple version?

    The 4,1 dual processor tray is tricky because you are going from processors without IHS to processors with. It's a 2mm difference. If you don't do it correctly, you will immediately burn your processor tray. Make sure you get it done right!
