Default Re: 2009 4.1 (4) Core Upgraded to a 5.1 (6) Core

I took a look on eBay to see if there was any residual value in the E5620s I took out of the cheesegrater. $3-10. Time marches on.

The new CPUs seem stable. Tools runs noticeably snappier, renders quicker. No additional fan noise from before.

I like you, didn't find out about this until after I had already bought my RAM. I figured I go ahead and install it, I had already paid for it and didn't want to have to return it.
Really? So no gains at all with the faster ram? Was about to pull the trigger as I just did the firmware update on my 4,1--->5,1 for PT12.6 on Sierra..

Everything I read, and I read a lot, indicated at best you could see a 5% gain, to me, that's not worth the cost.

Full discolor, I did upgrade to the faster, as I found out about all of this after the fact. If I were to do it all over agin, I would not have upgraded the ram.

Hi all!

I finally had time to upgrade my 8-core to 12-core and its rocking!

I found a dellided CPUs X5680 3.33GHZ and did it. Worked all day and its so much better!

The only thing that did not work was my new video card (GTX 970 flashed for mac) because it needs 2 power connectors and my HDX is using one so I just have one left. As far as I understand I would have to build an external power supply for it and I think its just too much for me. So I will sell it and look for another alternative.

But this message is mostly to thank the community and a special thank you to Barry Johns that helped me to move forward!

So all in all the 12 core is the way to go?
So which one is best? The 12 core 3.33 that I'm seeing is a couple of hundred less..thats the macpros that I'm seeing on online..
Do the 12 core with the 3.33's run cooler than the 3.46s?

When I did all of my research, what I was able to surmise was, to not go higher and 3.33 the faster CPU's can cause the computer overheat.
