Default Re: Upgrading a Mac Pro 5.1 12core 2.4Ghz

I don't disagree at all with the warning you are providing, actually thank you for doing that and catching me out earlier. But POST time issues are well understood, available in detail on the Internet, including the link I gave. Folks worried about boot time should look at the specific times other folks report, for different configurations, and things can can be done to optimize them.

My personal assumption would be any legacy Cheesegrater I owned would have all NVMe SSD, and only NVMe SSD, and yes those would be sitting off 4 x PCIe 3 switch based adapters. I am just too used to having lots of PCIe SSD storage not to want that. I'd sure like a Cheesegrater again given the PCIe SSD support story available now. And those poor *new* Cheesegrater owners will be wanting 4 x PCIe 4 switch based adapter cards soon.
