Only intended for Mac Pro 2009 dual CPU model. Need upgrade to 5,1 firmware before install. Check

Note that different from many sellers, this product has CPU die like a mirror. No residues of solder, thus much better thermal conduction.

Note that for testing we used pencil eraser and then used 90% alcohol to clean the pin contacts before install. Just in case it cannot boot for you, the first thing I’d try is to clean them again. Any questions about installing it are very welcome.
