    Hey guys, My g5 has been getting loud lately. I am guessing it the fans but it never did this before. It is cold here so i can not imagine it is getting too hot. It kicks in every minute or soem time less.
    Any suggestions?

    The only think i did as of mantaince is run onyX.

    thanks for the help.

    What version of OS X are you running? In the Energy Saver Prefereneces->Options what is your Processor Performance set to? If it's set to Automatic, try setting it to Highest (yes, this sounds counter intuitive).

    i am running 10.3.8

    and it was set to auto so i changed it to highest.
    I am going to reboot now.

    I will let you know if i see any differents

    It's 10.3.8. Alot of people have been having this problem with there G5s, but many have not. Apple's bound to release a fix soon.

    Search the forums for "10.3.8" and "fans" and you'll see.

    Just FYI, you didn't need to reboot.
