    3.2GHz Quad-Core Intel Xeon

    (when I've searched)
    95% of results are MB/MBP
    5% or results are older/ different needs

    The link I provided was limited to results in the past year. Here are a few of the threads that came from those results. I didn't read them all in detail, but you may find helpful information in them. They appear to deal with the Mac Pro, not the MacBook Pro. As you probably already know, when you search the forums using the Google engine, you can restrict the search by using quotes, so "Mac Pro" will find hits specific to your model.

    I'm just trying to steer you toward some possible answers. I hope this helps!
