    i have the dual processor dual core 2.66 ghz mac pro, purchased early 2007. I understand that this is a woodcrest. I also read once that it can be updated to a much faster machine with clovertown?
    What does all of this mean, and how can I do it, and are there a FEW sets of detailed instrcutions or even youtube videos? Any model #s of processors? How much can performance be improved?
    Thanks

    Thanks nerdish.

    sbb155 - That's my thread. I recently did the upgrade, as did a few others. Read through the thread, and if you have any questions, post them in the thread or PM me. Glad to help if I can.
