I'm actually completely ok with apple making their new design smaller, but only if they keep the same level of cooling they have with current Mac pros. I can burn my 8-core Mac 24/7 for a week straight and the damn thing never gets hotter than 40 degrees celcius and the fans never kick up once. Absolutely fantastic.

ya, they make great cases. My only gripe with the current Mac Pro design (other than the lack of 2.5" mount brackets) is that they let dust in so you can get a lot of dust accumulation on the GPU fan, which can eventually lead to overheating. I've seen it happen and you have to clean the fan. The alternative is not great though - a thin screen that accumulates dust like a clothes dryer.

Anyway, it's safe to say they will have a sweet design for the new machine and Apple needs to shut up and take my money already.
