Thats actually cooler than my June 04 dual 2.0GHz systems. Just figured I'd chime in since they're also air cooled.

I have the same tower, and your running within 2 degree's of what I run. No worries :)

Haha, I was about to say something like that. You are running a G5, that's what they do.

My intel macbooks have always run hotter then my G5 ever did though. Kind of annoying.

That and the battery would only last like 30 minutes :eek:

Yes my MBP CD seems to run a tad bit too warm. Hotter than my G5 anyways. I'm thinking it's mainly just the crappy thermal paste job I've been reading about. Good weekend project I guess, cleaning off all that junk and applying Arctic Silver 5 :D
