    I have just ordered a 20” iMac and was wondering if the new layout has improved HDD & CPU temps?

    Also has the fan issue been fixed?

    Lastly, are there any pictures that you have come across with the new Rev C striped down?

    Cheers, Ryan

    I believe the fan issue has been fixed shortly after the Rev A models were shipped.

    I had the Rev A model, and it had an ongoing issue, so Apple just replaced it with the new Rev C model. It was a sweet deal.

    To answer your question, this one does seem to run more quietly. I haven't noticed the fans roar as much as they did on my other iMac.

    I have the CPU in constant use, as I run Folding@Home, so it should be working pretty hard, but the fans don't kick up as much.

    Hope that helps!

    Good to know, I'm a bit of a silence freak so I'm glad it's been fixed :)

    I don't want to create the illusion that the iMac is silent, because it is not. You can hear the fans running, but it is faint. One thing about the hard drive though, I have never heard it at all.

    Does anyone know what HDD's they use off hand?

    The Samsung SpinPoint P SP2504C or Seagate Barracuda 7200.8 would be nice.

    I would have thought the Samsung would have been a good idea as it very cool running, near silent & very fast.
