OWC Mac Pro Processor Upgrade Kits now Available (sponsor blog) Kits for 2010 to 2013 Mac Pros, 2009 Mac Pro turn-key. See FAQ.
(If you have a 2009 with Mac Pro 5,1 EFI update, the CPU board still has 2009 SMC firmware version. Don't swap for a 2010-2012 Mac Pro 5,1 CPU board which won't have a matching SMC firmware version with your 2009 mainboard. Upgrade CPUs instead of CPU board swap. 2009 Mac Pros have CPUs without IHS (Integrated Heat Spreader) but later CPUs like the 2010-2012 Mac Pros use do. This is mentioned in some 2009 Mac Pro CPU upgrade reports in the past here (some adjusted for the IHS, others removed the IHS - IIRC video on that linked in some past reports). Updating the Mac Pro 4,1 to v5,1 EFI allows using 6 core CPUs, but doesn't update the SMC version, which must match the CPU board SMC version for proper function. Apple never posted a Mac Pro 5,1 SMC update that I know of, only an 5,1 EFI update which some have used to update their 2009 Mac Pros for 6-core CPU support, using the original 2009 CPU board.)
