Powerbook G4 12" Fan

Hello everyone i know the g4 12" is a popular model on the forum. I was curious i recentley upgraded my ram to 1.25 maxing it out. but the fan seems to be alot louder than when i just has 768. Anyone else have this problem or a answer to why it would be louder?

i just maxed mine out too but for me the fan doesnt seem to go on as much as before, and when it does it sounds about the same, although my superdrive sounds louder!

Are you sure its your fan. Is the sound originating from the left palm rest? My hard drive was failing and I initially thought it was a bad fan bearing.

Install temperature monitor and see what your internal temp is. My fan starts to get loud at 120 F.
Never switched
