In 2008 there were still reports of Quads leaking, I mean sometime the bad ones should have been naturally "sorted out".
Also, I wonder, if today most leakings come from used ones, that are shipped across the country. (Also, concerning PSU failure rates, I would like to know, if they are higher in the US than in e.g. France and Germany, since the US electricity "system" is said to be not that good, involving lightning conductors.)
The pessimist in me says that it's only a matter of time before all of the liquid cooled G5's fail from coolant leaks. Now with the PSU failures, if it hasn't failed by now, it's either been fixed or it isn't very likely to happen. I just, for some reason, can't put my trust on the liquid coolant as much as the PSU.
