MacPro 8 Core Cheese Grater


Well-known member
At work they were going to recycle an old MacPro cheese grater tower. 8 core Xeon.  I asked my boss if I could have it and he said yes!  It’s now my Plex server. Great machine-even better that it was free!  Lots of good videos on how to upgrade them.

Now I need to get rid of my PowerMac G5, which is in the trading post.

I have this machine and use it a lot; its been great; running OS Catalina with dosDude patch and windows 10 from SSD's. Upgraded the video card with Radeon 580....no boot screen but works great.
