Why do they need liquid cooling? I thought the G5s heat output was nothing compared to something like a pentium D.

I run a dual 2.5Ghz Powermac G5, and the temps on mine, the first liquid-cooled G5, routinely sit at 65-70*C and spike to 86*C under load....

Really freaked me out the first day after switching from a A64, lol!
