View Full Version : Why does my new G5 dual 2.7 sound like a jetliner?

I'm running OS 10.4.3. I've had the computer for about 2 months and the fans are incredibly loud and obnoxious. The machine is silent for a minute or two and then the fans just start roaring. This is really frustrating and borderline intolerable. Is this a hardware or an OS problem? Any help anyone could provide would be greatly appreciated...I would hate to get rid of this machine because I waited YEARS to buy a new Apple, but I can't have a computer that functions this way...Thanks!

Pretty new to the G5 myself, but I stumbled upon this...
Addresses fan control. Hope it helps.

Hyernel, I followed your link and made the adjustment in System Prefs; the machine runs much, much quieter now. Thanks very much for your help!!!!

Having the setting on 'Highest' causes the old quiet beeping from within to occur. Was a proper fix ever found for this?

I just installed the CHUD tools and disabled napping in the processor options. Wow. Eliminates all annoying noises.
