    You should also make one with air cooling like the real mac has.

      RANDOM NAME 4 days ago

      World of Tanks The Powermac G5 had watercooling. Air cooling is kinda hard to fit properly in a case of that size with the parts they’re trying to use.

    normal people who upgrade or swap out parts at least should never waste time hard-line "tubing" (pipes, they are pipes) any rig. also i hope all you kids develop epilepsy so your rgb fetish turns into a nightmare. i'll wait for the "ok boomer" comments.

    Aren't the water blocks on the video cards directional? Looks like the way its hooked up, one card will have the flow reversed.

    This is a fun and interesting build but what I would like to see after you have finished all the testing after completion is for you guys to tear this down (sorry) and rebuild it in a case more appropriate size-wise with bigger(and maybe be more) fans and then do the testing again. but got to say nice job looking great :)
