I have Mac Pro 5,1 intel Xeon W3565 at 3.2 GHz Quad-Core.

It is easy to upgrade in W3565 at 3.33 GHz 6-Core ???

Any intel Xeon W3565 fit in my Mac Pro ?

What CPU sockets supported for ?

Thank you,

It is socket-b(LGA 1366)

I think it is easy to upgrade your CPU

It should be easy to upgrade a single-cpu Pro, they use standard lidded Xeons. I am planning on upgrading to W3690s in a couple of 4,1 machines that have had their firmware flashed to 5,1.

Is it possible to easily remove and service right processor fan (the back one)? It makes too much noise, so needs some oil apparently. I didn't find any way to remove it.
