Quick Take: 2006 Mac Pro Dual 3GHz X5365 CPU Upgrade
A reader sent a short note and geekbench scores of his 2006 Mac Pro upgraded to Dual 3GHz X5365 CPUs (bought for $75, used/pulls I assume). This was his second CPU upgrade, previous was dual 1.83GHz L5320's. (I think the real world benefit of the X5365s over the L5320s is more than you'd think from just those Geekbench scores.)
