Then the board recognized the Xeon cpu.

From scarey to awesome!

Bargain upgrade for Mac Pro machines 2009-12

Chris A, Amazon
4 February 2015
  • Summary: I installed a pair of these in a 2010 Nehalem Mac Pro. Geekbench CPU score went from 15,500 to nearly 31,000. Happy days. NB: some (not all) mac pro models will need the correct firmware to use these CPUs. Install is easy if you follow instructions on YouTube.
