    X5482, X5492 should work just fine. 3.2GHz and 3.4GHz Quad's. You'll gain roughly 3000+ points in geekbench moving to the 3.2. The 3.4 was never released for Apple products but most likely will work and maxes out the line.

    You're wrong ! The only test that will work are SLA series so:

    X5472 3.0 GHz SLASA 120W
    E5472 3.0 GHz SLANR 80W (low power consumption than X5472 and X5482 so this is best buy !)
    X5482 3.2 GHz SLANZ 150W
    X5492 3.4 GHz is only SLB so won't work - don't buy !

    I'm using 2xE5472 SLANR with no problems.
