Answer to: Mac Pro 1,1 dead after processor upgradeAh, well. After sleeping over it, I think I remember that the last time the machine shut down, which must have been a week back or so, I inadvertedly interrupted the main power from the outlet and went "oops!" when I noticed the Mac was still running. Forgot about it later on, but that had killed my previous machine's PSU, which was a blue/white Power Mac, one time already. It has been sitting under my desk like a sad memorial of bad maintenance since then. So I suppose it was that case of huge coincidence and the machine was already dead when I operated on it. As to the Xeon 5355, they're okay according to many reliable sources on the web. I'm buying a new 1,1 now as the price of a single PSU is usually higher than that of a whole machine. Luckily, those run starting at around 100-130€ now, so it won't be that much of a disaster on my wallet.
