OK. We've seen the pics of the G5's cooling system, and know it has a liquid inside, which is pumped around and cools them big ol' 2.5GHz G5s... now. What *IS* the liquid? Take the poll!

Some kind of Oil. The option isn't up there though. So I've gone with beer. haha.

Coca-Cola? It might need a bit of caffiene for all the work it'll be doing, but then again...a dual G5 is already a lot faster than my brain. :P

It's gotta be beer. It just *has* to be. ;)

I already have enough strange desires to lick my mac. If it was filled with beer it would only make them stronger. :blink:

I'm thinking something more like Liquified Reality Distortion Field.

"Apple is using a closed-loop liquid cooling system comprised mostly of water with some propylene glycol" -taken from...
