Snazzy Labs has posted a video demonstrating that you can upgrade the processor, RAM, and SSD of the new 27-inch iMac yourself and save thousands!

The 27" 5K iMac is a good computer for many; however, to users that want high-end specs, Apple charges way too much money. Snazzy Labs pulls apart a base model iMac, upgrades the CPU, SSD, and RAM; showing the world the best iMac that Apple doesn't sell! Get the world's best iMac configuration for $2,000 less than what Apple charges.

For the video, Snazzy Labs purchased a mid-grade iMac model with an i5 processor, 512GB SSD, and 8GB of RAM. The desktop was then updated with a i7-7700k CPU, 2TB Crucial SSD, and 64GB of RAM. Notably, since the video was posted it's been confirmed that this upgrade could have been done with the low-end model saving even more.

Interestingly, following the upgrade, the customized iMac benchmarked better than Apple's high-end model.

Take a look at the video below for more details...

I work at a repair shop. All the fans are exactly the same. There's only one fan and it doesn't matter what's specs there are

Auto-correct error: that "additional" step.

I'm curios, does the low-end model utilize the same fan to help combat the more intensive heat from the faster processor? Or did they just not detail that Bessarabia step?
