    why do the 3950X, when there's the threadripper 3970X, I'm wondering how it compares to that 50K Mac pro.

    Kind of a flawed comparison- the machine in this video only clocks 12360 multicore max, with almost 1000Mhz faster memory without ECC. A vanilla Mac Pro has a 12084 multicore average for 12-core 7,1.
    The RAM and cores are faster in Mhz, and still just barely beat out the stock 12-core.
    This heart transplant isn't worth the risk- you're better off getting a $6K base Mac, and wait for the 48-core Intel Gold's to go on sale in 3 years.
    Sure, it's $2-3K cheaper, but that's to be expected for any home build vs any major brand like HP, Dell, SuperMicro, etc. You're paying for the case design, unique motherboard, and guaranteed compatibility. That may not be worth that much to you, but to other people it most certainly is.

    This isn't really an Apple's to Apple's comparison though is it? The Mac Pro uses workstation grade components, whereas this doesn't. The Mac Pro is reliable, whereas a Hackintosh with custom liquid cooling is the opposite of that. On top of that, the base model Mac Pro is arguably the worst value spec - it would be more interesting to see a comparison of a better spec against a PC built with workstation components, ie quadro cards, ECC memory, etc.

    For me, I’m thinking of using this technique to build a Hacintosh in an old G5 case that was damaged in a flood.

    Sick build! If you had replaced the wifi card with a MacOS compatible one, would that enable normal FaceTime and iMessage operation?

    6k for a Mac is a lot of money just like the $250,000 SGI Onyx workstation. Can some one tell me if SGI is still in bussiness.

      SGI filed for Chapter 11 back in 2009. The remains were acquired by Rackable Systems and then sold to HP in 2016.

    In your next video, you mention that this build was unstable, but its not clear if it was unstable under MAC OS or just windows. Please explain more.

    If you are a programmer who wants to do a Ryzentosh then you should know that Docker and Emulation do not work properly on Ryzen based hackintoshs. There are workarounds though, such as docker toolbox and Genymotion for Android emulation. Virtualbox works as well. This is because the hypervisor is written to work with intel CPUs (macOS).

    Apple's pricing, especially for products made in China, and for what you get when compared to a PC, is absurd. They've long been running on the strange status symbol/look at me/social statement clout that began way back when they launched iPods and later went through the ceiling with the iPhone. As an aside, I can't understand what would motivate anyone to want to fork over $1500 for a phone either.

    But it doesn't have amount of PCIe slots, dual 10gigabit ethernet, lacks in RAM support and well... it has no PCIe slots left free.... also no ECC ram, pro drivers nor Intel cpu. All these things cost a lot. Amd, nvidia ask premium for GPUs with pro drivers. Intel CPUs cost a lot more. ECC ram is ridiculously expensive, specially in higher capacities. Much less vram as well.

    This is more a story on how AMD is beating Intel as opposed to building a Hackintosh that beats the MP. If Apple were to use AMD CPUs I'm sure this would have turned out differently.

    of course - anything can beat crapple at the same price range. they are garbage made for people who cant think for themselves. good for the moronic masses i guess.

    you question why ur graphics card died it's because you used a screwdriver to clean the thermal paste off of it bro you hit something or destroyed a trace never worry about the thermal paste that's off the die it's fine just clean the die not around it....
