First Water Cooled Mac Studio

How good of a job did Apple do with the cooling on the Mac Studio?? Well it definitely isn't as good as our custom water cooling solution, I can tell you that much.

 

Buy an Apple Mac Studio Max: https://lmg.gg/R3sZI
Buy a Corsair iCUE Commander Core: https://geni.us/jsT6qsf
Buy a Corsair Hydro X XC7 RGB: https://geni.us/S6D5ASY
Buy a Corsair Hydro X XD5 Pump/Reservoir Combo: https://geni.us/tRw4d

Hey, an informative title right off the bat and a thumbnail that's eye catching but still straight-forward and not embarassing. I say keep up with that.

And, there is no need to oversell the video as something that is more interesting than the video actually is. Letting this and other videos be interesting as a merit of the subject of the video, and not just because of some bright colors and vague wording.

Apple Silicon is awesome, imagine if they built SBC, for makers to use and experiment with for cool projects like this.

Dreams...

Will there also be a episode where you guys take it to SUB-0 and see what the performance is then?

I most get a kick out of what LTT mentioned in the comments: that it took running the system at full tilt for 2.5 hours to see a noticeable difference over the stock cooling system. Part of that is due to the heat spreaders and turbo speeds, as mentioned, but I'd still say it's a testament to Apple's power control. I know I'd rather have a Mac Studio in a backroom server closet (admittedly not super common) than a furnace-like Intel tower.

I was thinking something more like RPi or Arduino for makers for the home automation/robotics/ML&AI.

yer take the mainboard from a M1 Mini... about the same size as a RPi with a load of IO for a board this size.
