Not all of the listed items have a voltage of 12 V. E.g the HDD+ODD has only 5 V and the CPUs have a much lower voltage. According to Intel the voltage of the Xeon® Processor X5670 maxes out at 1.350 V and the TDP is 2 x 95 W (and not 2 x 12 V x ~46 A = 1104 W). So just adding all currents and multiplying them with 12 to get the wattage is not appropriate ...

I just had my logic board, batttery, trackpad, screen, and keyboard replaced and I'm still having kernel crashes. OSX El Capitan is by far the worst Macintosh OS I've experienced. As someone above said, try clearing the ...

OK, this might be somewhat opinion-based, however... Possible, yes. Worth it, no. Possible There are tools & online guides far too long to repro or précis here on how to achieve it. It requires hacking the firmware & needs re-hacking at each update - These guides from MacRumors are as good as they get, one for Yosemite & another for El Capitan. ...

Unfortunately there are still very few, very expensive options because of the proprietary interface. Your best bet is to go with an external storage option using USB 3.0 or Thunderbolt. However, if internal is the only way to go, here are pretty much your only options: A quick Ebay search turned up this: $800 for 1TB ...
