    Upgrade CPU on mac pro
    Does anyone know if you can upgrade intel processors on an early 2008 mac pro?
    I currently have 2 X intel zeon 2.33Ghz.
    If I can, is it just a matter of popping them in, or would I need to re-instal OS as well?
    What sort of speed (Ghz) could I take the new ones up to?

    iMac i5 2.7GHz, 16GB memory, OS 10.11.1.
    Well Sultan will depend on whether you have a single or dual 2.8GHz. Upgrading a single is easier.

    If it is currently a dual maybe:-

    - Xeon E5472 3.0 GHz
    - Xeon X5472 3.0 GHz
    - Xeon X5482 3.2 GHz
    - Xeon X5492 3.4 GHz
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
