Mac Pro 3,1 (my current rig)

Hey Guys This is my current computer rig. I'll definitely be seeking advice when I have the money to build a nice gaming rig. 

I've replaced everything in this from stock except the Optical Drives, Logic board, and Power supply.

CPU: Dual Xeon X5482 @3.2 Ghz
GPU: Gigabyte 1050Ti Windforce OC 4GB
RAM: 32 GB ECC 800Mhz 

OS: Windows 10 Pro Fall Creators Update
Boot Disk: Samsung 850Evo SSD 240GB
Gaming Drives: 2 Silicon Power 120GB SSDs in raid0 running off 2 drive mounts in a pci slots.
Storage Drives: 3 WD Green 500GB in drive bays also in raid0 for speed. Sata II is lame.

Cinebench CPU: 671
Cinebench GPU: 55.4 FPS

Keyboard/mouse: Razer Blackwidow Ultimate 2016, and Razer Naga 2014.
Mic: Audio-technica AT2020 USB

Camera: Logitech C920 (so original)
2 of the original Optical Drives

I use it for streaming/gaming and light editing currently.

 

60 FPS triple buffered in rise of the tomb raider on ultra settings benchmark is good enough and League of legends and CSGO run nearly 200FPS which is wasted on my screen since i'm gaming off a 60 hz 1080p Display.

I also have a Mac Pro 1,1 and a 2011 iMac but the other pro sits in my closet and the imac is basically my tv now. 


Any tips for getting more performance out of what i have would be appreciated.

RAM and or Graphics card overclocking might help you a bit.

Graphics card overclocking is pretty straight forward.

RAM overclocking is a bit harder I think.

I have the graphics card turned up just a bit with afterburner. but i don't have access to BIOS to adjust the ram speed. i'm unaware of a way to tweak it outside of bios.

macOS has no BIOS way to do this.
