Mac Pro 5,1 Project

When Apple first introduced Mac Pro all-aluminum chassis, I thought it was just amazing and the design was just perfect.  Immediately I knew I wanted it.. but it was mac.. most of the software I used or many people in the industry use Windows.  Sadly I had to let it go and move on.. also it was way too expensive.

Soooo, I decided to find that has similar aesthetics as the Mac Pro.  For a long and hard search, I found it.  It was Lian Lin chassis.  I loved that chassis so much I was using it until the last year 2018 before it got replaced by Thermaltake level 10 limited edition.  But, somewhere in me, there was an empty spot that was never fulfilled.  The love for Mac Pro 5,1 was never gone and I still remember when I first had my eyes on it.

That was maybe more than decades ago.  I thought I would never fulfill it.  However, recently I was able to purchase Mac Pro 2010 from this lady off of Facebook marketplace for $75.  She was a very nice lady.  That was kind of start for me to see what I can do with this timeless piece of machine that never gets old. At least to my eyes.  I dug around youtube and google to see what I can do with it and interestingly there are many people still using this machine and even upgrading to the max.  It's not cheap to upgrade this thing by the way.  Some are selling fully upgraded Mac Pro 5,1 for $3000 on eBay.  That's almost as powerful as the latest PCs.
