Goal: Built to perform better than Mac Pro (2013) 6 Core Model. Base Price $3999

I built this PC just so I can compare it with the Mac Pro (6 core model). I have a youtube channel (youtube.com/Thramkar) based on technology and I do unboxings, reviews and a lot of PC builds. So I decided to take on the challenge of beating the Mac Pro without going past its $4000 base price.

All the parts I choose for this build pertain to workstation parts to make the comparison fair. The ultimate showdown will be uploaded on my channel in a week.

Wiring: I didnt care much for wire management since it was only going to be used a comparison and then sold or given away...

I love building PC's and do it as a hobby so if you guys like PC videos or technology in general then check my channel out. http://www.youtube.com/user/Thramkar

You will find the full video of the Workstation build on there.

As far as this list, feel free to leave any constructive criticisms in the comments section and -1/+1 for the build, whatever you see fit! Thanks for checking it out!

P.S. I got more builds to share with you guys on this website so make sure to check back within a few days.

Update: Just uploaded an awesome build a few days ago. Check it out.

How did the cpu perform?

Yeah... except the mac did it all in a much smaller space, MUCH smaller, and probably is quieter than your PC. It also runs windows, which, in my opinion, is very inferior to MacOS. Other than that, GREAT BUILD YO!
