  • ShoopersTheWoopers

    I hate how this turned out. (NO HARM!)
    first of all, I have my own Hackintosh, that looks EXACTLY like a mac! Not with holes in the side..
    Second of all, I really don't think you need a ton of ram. I can open 20+ tabs fine on my Hackintosh. (15 gigs of ram, upgrading soon)
    Third, it can be a little bit over more powerful then Apple's Mac Pro. I have over 1.5 Terabytes, and it's also fast.
    Fourth, watercooling can be cool; BUT apple didn't do that! So nobody cares.
    Fifth, it still has to have the apple spirit. Obviously this looks disgusting, and you can do better EVERYWHERE.
    Sixth, the IO Shield and other related things can look way better. Considering I PERFECTLY sanded the IO slots for my Hackintosh, looking at a FLash-playerr with 10.4M+ more subscribers then me, it's embarrassing.

    Don't take this as hate; Linus is the funniest guy ever, and I don't want anyone hating this comment. I just think you can do a bit better and it doesn't always have to be fast; you can slowly upgrade it :).

    Specs I know of:

    15 Gigs of RAM
    Ryzen 3 (yes, it's a old APU, but it gets the job done w/ fortnite and cs;go.)
    1.5+ terabytes of storage.

    I'm just saying Linus (he won't see this lol); you don't always have to go on the overpowered side. If it's a fun project that you wont use much, use this advice people. If it's a daily gaming computer, shove that 512 gigs of ram, RTX 2080 TI, and a core zeon in there! BUT; Before you do that, take your time. Don't buy it all at once, slowly go up and you can top the speeds on benchmarking programs without hacking. :) Have a good day, no harm or dislikes to anyone.

    Sorry Linus, I would rather buy the Macintosh... Like look at your solution and now look at Apple.

      Yeah, it is. Easy way to do it is add 16 to 384 which is 400 then divide that by 4.

    Instead of using old Mac pro case, you should use Dune Pro Case. It will utilize more peripheral for further expansion, while in the same time have same cosmetic appearance of new mac pro.
