    I bet a Ryzen 2950X on an X570 MB, and there are those that can give 10Gbs networking AND Thunderbolt, could do almost the same as this build, with much less memory, and cost WAY less. And 2 Vega GPUs give better compute even though they aren't as fast at PC gaming.

    I think a company should market HACK MACs using either Ryzen or Threadripper, and see how quickly it drops Apple sales. I think there are a couple of bugs using AMD for HACK MACs, and if those were worked out it would flatten any other HACK or real MAC Pro.

    Ashame regardless that you taken it apart. But what I’ve done with one of my G5’s was tried my best to keep the G5 look. Did well didn’t cut much reused the rear fan Assembly and fitted new 92mm looks great front I/o with new usb parts and the original power button. What an amazing case and computer.
