  • What are the Geekbench scores? And will this help a DAW, such as Ableton, run faster? I've updated my 2009 to 5.1 with 3.46 six core processor and 16 gb of ram. Other than the SSD drive the processor upgrade didn't seem to make much difference. Will going to 32 GB ram make a significant difference?

  • Wouldn't you be better off sticking to 48GB RAM to take advantage of the 3-channel bus? If you populate all 64GB it will drop down to 2-channel. Sure it depends what you need it for, and whether speed is more important than that extra 16GB. Personally, my 3,1 has 64GB slightly slower mem than it can handle because it was literally 1/3 the price of the max speed. But the difference was not as big as 2ch v 3ch.

  • I've done this to 3 different vintages of mac pro towers. By showing a 3.06GHz clock it looks like you took it to dual X5675. you can always push those a little further and drop in the X5690 and push that to 3.46GHz base speed. I wouldn't waste money on delidded CPUs , just grab a matched pair on ebay. You don't need to delid them for the stock coolers. You do need to watch voltages though as the X5690 is a 130w chip, unlike 90w that apple shipped stock. I can confirm that the stock PSU will run dual X5690s as well as a Quadro K5000 without issue under 100% load. They still make great video and 3d graphics machines.

Don't think I need to tell you it has the potential of crippling his channel. They have your channel listed on theirs. I wonder if they'd listen to reason from voices in the YT techie community?

  • One thing I do find odd is that with this budget, you could build a much better rig. Including the hard drive we’re looking at $1,500, which second hand is top tier equipment. Also, ultimate Mac Pro? Ultimate ten year old Mac Pro, sure.

  • Couldn't this take way more RAM? I think 128GB is the maximum. And which Xeons did they use? X5675? Why not X5690? Great improvements sure but I would hardly call them "Ultimate". There are videos on DE-visions of people that went way further with their upgrades on 5.1's.

  • Wouldn't it be easier, in particular for a offroad pc, to just buy an imac mini, with the 6 core I5 and the 10GBit Nic. I mean, you could also easily, if needed hang on any more powerful external GPU as also additional storage. I mean, the I5 has nearly 3 times the sc score, and the same mc score in geekbench.
