***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:
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
