Even if it does get hot.... Apple won't be selling workstation that overheats after 5 mins of intensive work... they aren't that stupid.

Ah, I just realized why they're making it in the US. It's because they need workers who can apply TIM properly biggrin.gif

I'm not even "TROLLE-INGG" if it's the modified 7990 GPUs', which is what it seems like, it'll be putting out a lot of heat, plus the either ivy/sandy xeon chips which will also get warm coming down to a bunch of holes at the bottom? People will put this on carpet and it will get really hot really quick. Or even put their drives (because external) on top to save desk space and choke out the airflow...

EDIT; w9000s' or what ever the firepro is, tarded out slightly

It's mostly the chance of human error being a lot higher in this, let's face it a lot of people who buy these will not be the brightest with PCs' and not realise that you need to keep vents clear (I've had to sort out laptops which have had damn stickers covering vents countless times which end up overheating) And people will place things on top, or place this on a surface which will inhibit airflow, even one of those IKEA desks with a side-holder thingy will probably prevent airflow a fair amount, i know it did for my old PC which overheated a lot towards the end of its life before i realised it was overheating.

Anyone have an idea where the power supply on that thing is? I keep looking it over but I'm not seeing it.

Surely it can't be running off an external brick with the kind of wattage it would be pulling... can it? wth.gif

Well, I'm guessing a lot of people who will be buying this are not going to be your average consumers. Mac Pro line is aimed towards professionals and I'm going to give them the benefit of the doubt that they'll know a thing or two about cooling/ventilation.

I know around 10 people who own these (old mac pro) and a relative with a print company, they all haven't the slightest idea about PCs' overheating, in fact one of my friends was surprised that his laptop got warm and didn't understand why, he thought it was broken and something about the LED backlight making it hot

Why are we arguing about the cooling system? It's a professional workstation. There's no concept of chips being "hot" or "cool"; they're only either in spec or out of spec, and Apple won't be selling an out of spec system.

The only question is whether the system will be quiet. Apple claims so, but we're gonna have to wait for tests.

It appears to be integrated at the base and has a normal 3-prong.

We might well as well be concerned about people pouring beer into the top or racing the case down hills. If anything happens to the chips from the vents being blocked (unlikely: self-throttling), the owner is welcome to learn not to do it again.
