    Hey wats up guys. I just joined the forum. I've got a 2.5 dual core G5, and my fan is always running, and its loud. I still get normal functionality while moving about on the system, but my fan always running is annoying cause its loud. It comes n goes like gets loud, quiets down builds back up, and its constant. Is that normal or do I need a fan?

    Is it a dual processor G5 or a G5 quad?

    What OS are you running? Also, try setting the processor performance on "highest" in the Energy Saver preference pane.
