    Rating: 5/5 What a difference December 23, 2019 Upgraded our 24/7 Mac Pro Server from 4 to 12 cores 2 weeks ago, running several databases and several VMs. Ok, you could have something cheaper running Windows Server, but who wants that. The upgrade process was scary at first, but the Mac Pro 2013 is built tough, so ripping it apart and built up again is easy with a little help coming from the video. Good tools are key (forget about the iFixit drivers, way too slippery for tight screws), and don't forget to buy the best thermal paste you can get. Do not use the one coming with the upgrade kit! And that's the only negative thing about this kit. I am happy with this upgrade, I guess we will upgrade the other Mac Pros as well. BTW: UPS should learn to read and fill out custom's forms correctly!!

    I would recommend this item to a friend! Customer Videos:
