Hey everybody. My father purchased my mom a new iMac a couple weeks ago and I ended up doing all of the setup. I have noticed that it is much louder than I expected it to be. The noise it makes is quieter than the PC she had before, but its still a bit more annoying than I ever expected it to be. It sounds as if maybe one of the fans isn't completely clear of obstruction, giving it a whiney sound. Am I crazy or should we call Apple? Recording (3.5MB) This is about 4 minutes long. The majority of the noise is when the iMac isn't really doing anything. If you choose to listen, you can easily tell when the iMac is being asked to do anything that requires the slightest bit of CPU time. Maybe I expect too much for it to be quieter?
