    Hey guys,

    Just wondering if it is at all possible to upgrade the CPU of my A1186 MAC. It currently has 2x 2.66 GHz D. Core Xeon 5150. Build is MA 356.

    Do you know if this possible?

    Yes you can upgrade your 5150s to x5345 (2x2.33 quad), x5355 (2x2.66 quad) or x5365's (2x3.0 quad, this is what my dad's workstation runs)

    You need a phillips screw driver (#1, #2, #0), and a long (6+") 3mm hex driver.
