Mac Pro | Is upgrading from [8-core: Two 2.93GHz Quad-Core Intel Xeon 5500 series processors] to [12-core: Two 3.33GHz Six-Core Intel Xeon 5600 series processors ] as simple as exchanging the CPUs?

I think talking about things that break Apple's EULA is not permitted. Upon talking about jailbreaking and hakintosh in the chat, you will get the message:

Hackintosh We do not permit discussion of installing OS X on hardware other than Apple machines or discussion of jailbreaking. Doing so breaks the terms of Apple's EULA, found here: http://images.apple.com/legal/sla/docs/macosx105.pdf

well theres two things you need to find out, does the 5600 use the same socket as the 5500 and does the chipset suport the 5600? if so then yes im sure it will work!
