Once again, another iFixit teardown that subtly bashes Apple products for not conforming to their definition of repairability. It is getting tired. And the humor, isn't.

MojoFix - Réponse

How is an 8 out of 10 Apple Bashing? REALLY??!!!

Aaron Glendenning -

I agree. The ability to add internal storage doesn't make a computer more "repairable". It should be a 9.

Paul Burt -

@Mojofix: going to have to agree with Aaron, 8/10 on a device packed with proprietary components and connectors seems kind of high actually. Are you just upset that they put the word "inexpensively" in quotes?

Nathan Macey - Réponse

Name one proprietary connector.

Mark -

PC repair should not require a putty knife. Most Apple products are built like consumer toys that will be thrown on the scrapheap as soon as the new model comes out.

The fact that a Mac Pro can be repaired is not something that should trigger any special praise. These machines have always been different from Apple's other products. People should expect better of them. It's good that the new Pro is as repairable despite their proprietary parts. However, it's just what should be expected.

"PC repair should not require a putty knife."

Who says?

And being that this is not required here, WTH is even your point?

"Most Apple products are built like consumer toys that will be thrown on the scrapheap as soon as the new model comes out."

Um, apparently you have never checked the Mac resale market.

You simply have no idea what you're talking about. At all.

Contrairement à la croyance populaire, le nouveau Mac Pro est plus proche du design d'une canette en aluminium que d'une poubelle. (Pas qu'il y ait un souci avec les poubelles - certains de nos droïdes astromeches préférés ont la forme de poubelles.) Le côté arrière (si un cylindre peut avoir un côté arrière) contient le bouton d'alimentation et l'entrée électrique, ainsi qu'un bon nombre de ports : Haut-parleurs et prises casque de 3,5 mm

killercup - Réponse

The volume of the new mac pro is around 5.5 liters, so it would probably be very similar.

Tellow Krinkle - Réponse

  • Voici un choix de design inhabituel pour Apple : simplement faire glisser le commutateur de verrouillage permet de retirer le boîtier extérieur du Mac Pro. Aucune vis Pentalobe récalcitrante ici !

  • Quelles autres fonctionnalités de réparations améliorées trouverons-nous dans cet canette de soda ordinateur de bureau ? Seul le temps et les spatules (spudger) le diront.

    • Nous espérons sincèrement que ce n'est pas que du vent.

Given how easily the outer casing is separated, I would not be surprised if companies like ColorWare to start offering custom color and finish services. Should be fairly easy to bead blast/anodize/paint compared to Macbook Air/Pro.

How do you remove the heatsink/cover from the SSD module? I see several vendors selling blades that are compatible but do not have the heatsink/cover included. I assume one would have to reuse the stock heatsink/cover.

Rex Wui - Réponse

I have the same question. I just pulled a 256gb from mine and to reuse it on a macbook I will need remove the heatsink. I suppose I need to heat with a heat blower but I am not sure...

Alber Einsten -

Hi, is the screwdriver TR8 or T8? I see the Tool on the top of the page is TR8.

Chun-Yuan Cheng - Réponse

The screw is a T8, we listed the T8 as required, we just sell a TR8 as our T8, to account for both T8 and TR8 screws. So if you have a T8 without the security divot, you'll still be able to work on this device =)

Can you take that fan assembly to pieces? By a process of elimination, that's where the Wi-Fi and Bluetooth circuitry and at least one of the antennas are.

Dominic Dunlop - Réponse

I agree. Look at the fan power connector, It's a ridiculous connector for a fan. It should also carry data for the wifi module, the 6-antenna array is also integral with the fan, with 1 extra for bluetooth maybe

Tom Chai -

Dominic is correct. The Airport/Bluetooth card and the antennas are housed in the fan area. It is under what is being called the Roof (the black cover in the middle of the fan). It is just adhered by glue, use a couple black sticks to pry it off.

Tom, it is only four antennas. My guess is three for Wi-Fi and one for Bluetooth.

Greg Homyak -

Yes, we can! Check out the update in steps 8-10 to see what we found.

Andrew Optimus Goldberg -

Thank you, Greg. I hope they get the pictures out soon. I saw the airport extereme with 6 antennas, so I assume there will also be 6 antennas in this device. Now the config clears up. As a client device rather than a base station, it doesn't have to work on both bands simultaneously. So the 3 antennas are for 3x3 MIMO wifi, either 2.4G or 5G operation, and an additional 2.4G for Bluetooth. just like iMacs.

Tom Chai - Réponse

According the tear down the fan just lifts off? No screws or anything to unplug? Thats weird.

Nathan - Réponse

Is that correct, the fan simply pops off without having to be unscrewed?

ole -

Teardowns are intended to provide a look inside a device, and are not to be followed as disassembly directions. We simplify the procedure down to a general overview, without including every screw or clip, so that we can focus the bigger picture of the device.

Since the teardown, we've made a complete set of guides for the Mac Pro, including a Fan Replacement Guide.

And to answer the question, there are several screws holding the fan in place.

Andrew Optimus Goldberg -

You did not detail the screw removal for the fan from the chassis or the type of torx driver used or the locations of the screws.

andrew - Réponse

You're right, and we don't normally go into that level of detail for a teardown. Teardowns provide a first look at the hardware and an opportunity to assess repairability; they're not intended to be used as instructions. Not to worry, though—we have a complete set of step-by-step guides available for that very reason.

Mise à jour du démontage: vous avez demandé, nous avons répondu. Nous avons sorti le couvercle en plastique du module du ventilateur et nous avons trouvé une toute nouvelle série d'ingénierie de précision. Logé confortablement dans un nid d'antennes, la carte AirPort rentre dans une petite carte d'adaptation qui se connecte également au ventilateur ci-dessous.

Everybody wants to know if the new Mac Pro can be run on its side or at least tilted (for some kind of rack mounting). If you put the MP back together, can you see if the fan works properly? You mentioned the probability of it being balanced. What happens if it's tilted 45 degrees?

plink53 - Réponse

At least one hosting company will be rack-mounting these horizontally. http://www.macstadium.com/blog/new-mac-p...

shamino -

Apple answered my question today with a posting on their website: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT6099?viewl....

It can be put on its side.

As for the MacStadium, I'd rather see the MPs installed within a ring enclosure (like a wine rack) allowing the maximum amount of airflow around them.

Une vue de dessus : Le Mac Pro utilise un dissipateur de chaleur triangulaire géant ("Thermal Core"), partagé par les deux cartes graphiques doubles et le CPU.

La structure du Mac Pro étant dominée par le dissipateur thermique central, nous allons commencer par retirer des composants. Une pince et quatre vis maintiennent chacune des deux cartes graphiques doubles AMD FirePro D300 en place. Au milieu de la puissance de traitement habituelle et de la comparaison des coûts avec un PC de bureau domestique similaire, ces cartes graphiques peuvent être la clé pour que Apple court circuite enfin les systèmes alternatifs qui ne sont basé que sur la puissance pure.

So have I been being unnecessarily OCD about making sure I don't get thermal paste overflow when I build my PCs? There's a ton of goop in there!

Joshua Rogers - Réponse

@Joshua Rogers: No. Apple has been applying far too much thermal paste to its systems as a matter of routine for many years-going back to at least 2008. So much, in fact, that people sometimes see a temperature decrease of about 5*C by reapplying the thermal paste on the Macbooks and Macbook pros correctly. Compared to the mess they make in the laptops, those GPUs are actually pretty clean.

  • L'autre différence importante à noter est que cette carte (et uniquement cette carte) héberge la fente du SSD. Cela nous semble être une opportunité potentielle d'expansion: peut-être des configurations de stockage plus élevées utilisent-elles deux de cette variété, pour se doubler sur les SSD?

Would love it know if the dual SSD video card theory is viable. Frankly I don't understand why Apple didn't do this in the first place (not enough PCIe lanes?)

Dan Thale - Réponse

Would like to know as well, I wonder if could swap another similar GPU board from another unit and see if it works.

Wei -

Definitely not possible.

1) Cards differ physically (aside from the SSD). Look at those two holes up top - they are on opposite sides.

2) There are no PCIe lanes left. And even if there were. They would have to be correctly routed to where you need them. As it is even USB 3.0 doesn't have enough lanes (one 2.0 lane for all four ports - so don't count on running multiple bandwidth intensive devices over USB, use Thunderbolt instead). And BIOS would have to play ball with you (which is doubtful).

Martin T -

I meant throughput, obviously.

I think you need to look up the word 'proprietary'... I would bet that those 300 pin connectors are Molex HD Mezz or something similar. Just because it's not a connector you normally see on the outside of a personal computer, it doesn't mean that Apple has made a custom one. The Mac Pro will not be sold in huge numbers - making custom shape PCBs is simple, tooling up to make custom board interconnects is not and is probably not worth it (even for Apple) at these volumes. Get a magnifying glass out, look at the connector and I'm sure you'll see some branding on there that will lead you to the manufacturer.

As Dennis Murphy says, they look like connectors that have been used before.

The connectors for the 2 graphics cards do appear to be the same, 10x30 arrays, however the back side of the board clearly shows their respective pin utilizations to be quite different as one might expect. Perhaps a future iteration may go in that direction.

It will be interesting to see how Apple secures the new Mac Pro to the Apple Store table since they did not add on a Kensington security slot to the computer's body. I suppose the easy nature of how the machine is taken apart makes a Kensington security slot very insecure. Also, if the Mac Pro costs between $5,000 to $10,000, then a thief would easily bring a cable cutter to take the computer away. This makes a Kensington security cable simply very insecure. Thus the lack of security slot on the Mac Pro.

The base of the Mac Pro is one area where some sort of security clamp may be placed - something that is a variant of what can secure the Mac Mini - which also doesn't have a security slot.

Hi iFixit guys,

Is it possible to connect the video card containing the SSD to either of the two connectors on the round daughter board? If so, then I hope someone gets a second video card with SSD controller to see if both can work at the same time. It would be huge if this machine can handle two SSDs. Of course it may be very expensive...

Hi Andrew, we were hoping the same thing! Unfortunately, the cards have their power connections on opposite sides, so they can only be installed in their initial positions.

Looking at the round IO card, it looks like the two connectors for the video cards are different so I seriously doubt that one could swap in a second SSD capable video card to get more SSD storage.

L'alimentation n'a pas de refroidissement dédié, et dépend du ventilateur du système principal pour garder la température, ce qui permet au Mac Pro de ralenti à 12 DBA silencieux. À titre de comparaison, nous avons trouvé une PSU de 450 watts dans notre récent démontage de la Steam. L'alimentation SilverStone de Steam Machine comportait un "ventilateur silencieux de 80 mm avec un minimum de 18 dBA".

I do not see the point. I own old AT SMPS they are about 20 years old now. All of them use electrolytic caps. All of them are running well over thousand of hours. It is not the type of the cap who is running bad. It is the quality. In this case all high quality Nippon.

My first guess for the MSP430s would be port / power button lighting control, perhaps power button too (is it capacitive, by any chance?), but why would there be 3 of them?

OTOH, they would be a pretty weird choice for glue logic, so it's probably something (else) trivial like that.

  • Le boîtier facilement ouvert est conçu pour faciliter les mises à jour de la RAM.

  • Bien qu'il nécessite un peu de fouille, la CPU est remplaçable par l'utilisateur, ce qui signifie que les réparateurs intrépides devraient pouvoir économiser considérablement avec une mise à niveau à partir de la configuration du processeur de base.

  • Il n'y a pas de place ou de port disponible pour ajouter votre propre stockage interne. Apple a géré cela avec des tas de Thunderbolt, mais nous préférerons personnellement utiliser les SATA plus compatibles si nous le pouvions.

  • Avec certains nouveaux connecteurs propriétaires et un routage de câbles serré, travailler sur ce périphérique de 3 000 $ sans manuel de réparation pourrait être risqué.

Whilst widely compatible, SATA is a previous generation technology, support for any storage other than PCIe would be a waste of time in a machine designed to ride out the 4K storm.

The MBA isn't about to get any easier to repair. No way. Despite Al Gore (Mr Environment) being on Apple's board of directors, most of Apple's products are essentially throwaway.

However, if you want a relatively easy to fix Macbook you should grab one of the non-retina 13" Macbook Pros before they're discontinued. I bought one to replace my white Macbook and it's much more powerful. And it's easy to e.g. replace the hard disk.

If you search for LM4FS1 you probably find one of the following manufactures Burr-Brown (BB), Chipcon, GrayChip, NSC (National Semiconductor), Harris (RCA Electronics Pte), all owned by Texas Instruments and Micron, as I did on this web page.

So it looks like it's a special version of a Cost-Effective System Management Controller Chip.

How does this thing get an 8/10?

"While it will require a bit of digging, the CPU is user-replaceable"

"There is no room, or available port, for adding your own internal storage."

"Apple has addressed this with heaps of Thunderbolt, but we'd personally rather use the more widely compatible SATA ..."

"With some proprietary new connectors and tight cable routing, working on this $3,000 device without a repair manual could be risky."

How can anything be considered repairable when proprietary parts of any sort are needed? How can one repair anything without parts?

Tedious does not mean difficult. Nothing in the teardown implies it is significantly more difficult than most PC MOBOs.

Nonsense! PCIe is NOT proprietary, and anyone, ANYONE can manufacture an upgrade drive.

"internal storage not addressed cos Thunderbot is external storage!"

No, EXPANDABLE storage was addressed, which was the stated issue.

"SATA's the idiot proof choice"

So, this is a pro machine. It is not for idiots. Oh wait, you're referring to…?

Also, you have NO evidence that ANY of the connectors are proprietary. As for repair manual needed, that's the WHOLE POINT OF THIS SITE!!! WTF, indeed.

As for "proprietary parts" care to name a PC that doesn't require such parts?

Let's see...the only components replaceable off-the-shelf are the cpu & the ram--or would you add the SSD to that? And you think this merits an 8 out of 10 "repairability score"? As a far as "repairability" goes, if you cannot replace the individual components as needed you cannot repair it. Whether or not you have to tear stuff apart to disassemble it has nothing whatever to do with whether or not it is repairable. Try again. The Mac Pro is actually a 2 out of 10 on the repairability index while it may very well be an 8 out of 10 on the disassembly index--but a "disassembly index" tells us nothing about the ease or lack thereof in its repair (ie, if you can take something apart with thumbscrews but cannot buy replacement components as needed you cannot repair it, can you?)

Of course you'd add SSD to that. Why on earth not?!? And how about BOTH graphics cards. NOTHING in them is proprietary, and AMD is free to make compatible boards. As to the rest, you have no idea which parts Apple might have available for repairs, such as I/O boards, etc..

Besides which, most issues with circuit level logic are the result of single capacitor or SMD resistors going bad. If you can't replace those yourself, you have no business calling yourself competent at component repair. Try again.

Apple's design is typical Apple consumer bait for an under-powered PC compared to an equivalent PC of the same cost. It is not repairable or upgradeable with generic components, using parts that are either unobtainable by end users or, if they are available, cost a lot more than equivalent PC parts.

The last Mac Pro I owned was the "innovative" liquid cooled G5 which leaked corrosive chemicals that dissolved the innards turning the computer into toxic waste. Fortunately, for me, that didn't happen but its reputation caused that Mac Pro model to plummet to junk bond status in the used Mac market. Like the current Mac Pro, it used proprietary graphics cards which cost a fortune to replace or upgrade. I recently sold it loaded with thousands of dollars worth of still very useful software for the most I could get for it, $150. Fortunately, this Mac Pro isn't liquid cooled. Compare that to the Apple fanatic disparaged PC which cost less for the same capabilities and has a much longer useful life.

You seem to have this thing for posting completely baseless comments with NO evidence to support them whatsoever.

Oh really? Please list the machines capable of handling real time 4k video with similar graphics cards for less than the cost of the Mac Pro. Good luck with that. As soon as you actually bother to do the research, you'll find that just replicating the graphics cards will over flow your budget!

What complete and utter nonsense! First, very few machines suffered from leakage issues, and after Apple replaced the LCS system with a Panasonic-fabbed LCS, there were essentially ZERO machines that suffered the problem. Beyond that, you have NO evidence that this issue resulted in used value falling. Please feel free to post a year by year comparison vs OTHER Mac Pros (not just of the G5) that refute this by showing a marked differentiation in depreciation coefficients between machines.

"Like the current Mac Pro, it used proprietary graphics cards"

First, the current Mac Pro does NOT use proprietary cards, it requires special drivers. But you could make that argument of ANY OS. Just because Windows is the defacto standard does not mean its products work without software support. And since the only way to allow Mac Pros to use those cards would be to replicate the Windows 6x driver architecture, which IS proprietary, your point is rather silly and hypocritical.

"I recently sold it loaded with thousands of dollars worth of still very useful software for the most I could get for it, $150."

Leaving aside the fact that it is illegal to sell a machine with preloaded soft are like that without the install disks, your machine is at least SEVEN YEARS OLD. Try giving away your 7yo PC!

"Compare that to the Apple fanatic disparaged PC which cost less for the same capabilities and has a much longer useful life."

Just a quick question regarding a 450 watt psu:

As an ex-pc guy who dealt with nothing but 800-1200 watt PSUs, is this really expected to be enough to power for 2 GPUs with 2 processors and 4GB of RAM each, let alone everything else?

I currently have a 27' IMac and I am always amazed at how cool it runs even under full load with graphics apps running full tilt. I know Mac "has a way" with things but even with the 27" Ive always wondered about the PSU and what kind of overhead is available. Fully taxed PSUs seem to not last too long in my experience.

In the accompanying video the presenter pointedly states...

"All the available ports have been consolidated onto one card, so if one of your USB or thunderbolt ports goes bad, you'll need to replace all of the ports on your machine, to fix it."

What a strange issue to raise.

A more realistic comment would be that they've split the traditional mother board into a separate processor support board, port board, and interconnect board and cable.

So if one USB port goes bad, you only need to replace all of the ports, rather than all of the ports, CPU support chipset, CPU socket, memory sockets, power regulation, ..... as you would on most other machines.

Or, of course, on either design you could just add some replacement ports via PCIe.

Bluntly, this machine is far less wasteful on component failure than the typical modern motherboard centric machine.

henry3dogg - Réponse

As is typical of Apple's, a replacement Mac Pro IO port board will cost as much as a PC motherboard.

Brian - Réponse

And being that PCs typically have the I/O ON the MOBO, that is about tit for tat, since repairing the I/O would require MOBO replacement, per se.

Besides, you have no idea what the replacements are, anyway.

Troll.

Mark -

If the cost of replacing the Mac Pro's I/O board is the same or close to what it is for a new PC motherboard, it isn't tit-for-tat because a new PC motherboard replaces virtually all of the computer's components except for memory and the CPU and comes with a new warranty whereas replacing the Mac Pro's I/O board does not, it only replaces a subset of components and the declining or expired Apple Care warranty on the Mac Pro continues. Even if the cost for the replacement for the Mac Pro's I/O board is lower than a PC motherboard, which it probably wouldn't be by much, the replacement of a PC motherboard because of broken I/O port would probably be just the cost of the port connector and a bit of time to open the case, replace the I/O connector (desolder/resolder or unplug/replug) and reassemble the case. Another inexpensive solution available for the PC which is not available for the Mac Pro is to install a PCI expansion card with the I/O ports required/needed.

Brian -

There were a lot of liquid-cooled G5 Mac Pros which leaked but Apple replaced a small percentage of them, virtually all in the USA only. For its cost, the current Mac Pro underperforms compared to a custom built PC of equal cost - look around the Net at benchmark comparisons and you'll find it. The Graphics cards are proprietary, what other computer uses the type of connectors used on the Mac Pro's - try to buy one. I used to be a Mac Fanatic/Macophile too but I got over it.

Hello Dennysb

The problem with thunderbolt 2 : its going through the PCI-2 and not the PCI-3 lanes wich are used for graphic cards so there is a bottleneck.

But the bigger problem either, is that the compatibility are not so simple. Actually connecting an external GPU to a nmp will give you an error code 12 in Windows bootcamp and there is no drivers for pascals cards in iOS for the moment. soon...with sierra

Theoretically you could do " WhatEver You Want " but sadly the true is that the nmp design is quiet "upgrade less" and you have to be a very confirmed programmer, they dont give actually the solution because programmers are fighting : http://forum.netkas.org

Or the other solution could be to adapt the hardware, which is not so clean as software re-programming, but could give the possibility to use the PCI-3 Lanes with only 1 GPU and at least had a 2nd internal PCI based flash storage to the other free PCIe3 such as the new intel ssd.

if you know a solution to really make an oGPU work on nmp tell me :-)

nexg - Réponse

External GPU on Mac Pro 2013 can only use a PCIe 2.0 x4 connection for throughput and the internal GPU cannot be upgraded past D700 because the computer uses the undocumented and proprietary ~300 pin graphics board flex cable connector between the GPUs and CPU. http://www.ifixmaccomputers.com/mac-pro-...

I own the highest-end Mac Pro 2013 configuration and I can tell you its specifications going into 2018 are underwhelming without further upgrades. I had to use a custom-made dongle to upgrade the hard drive to 2 terabytes and 50% faster than Apple’s best offering and I have to reverse engineer the Mac Pro myself to upgrade the internal graphics cards past the D700. The only internal components that are able to be upgraded with 3rd party solutions without reverse-engineering trade secret knowledge internal to Apple is the CPU and the RAM.
