OWC's Mercury Extreme processor upgrades are 'plug-and-play' solutions that do not use or require enabling software.

Also included in each upgrade is a pre-installed, high-performance heat sink and an ultra-quiet cooling fan. Each unit comes with a 30-day money back guarantee, as well as a three-year limited warranty and an option for OWC to buy back the used processor being replaced. They are available immediately for $620 and $500, respectively.
