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 were Windows.  Sadly, I had to let go and move on.

The love for mac pro always lingered around me. I decided to find similar chasis as the Mac Pro.. thats how obsessed I was.  I found Lian Lin chassis looked closest to mac.  Great chassis and I loved it so much it stuck around until the last year, 2018.  I now have Thermaltake level 10 limited edition.

However, The love for Mac Pro 5,1 never left me.. The damn machine still looks good.

That was maybe more than decades ago.  I thought I would never fulfill it.  Until, 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 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.
