From scarey to awesome!

Dyseman, Amazon
28 April 2015
  • Summary: Replaced my i7 950 with this in my MSI x58 Pro-E motherboard (Last Firmware 8.F) At first the computer fired up and all, but nothing woke the screen up. Scared and worried I ran around the web trying to make sure I had compatible hardware with this Xeon. Couldn't find anything.

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.
