    Ummmm... don't be running your machine with fans unplugged.

    Hard to understand your post.

    But it sounds like you are after disassembling a PowerMac G5 dual 2.5 which is still under warranty. This would be a warranty-limiting thing to do and not at all advised.

    I think you would be best served taking the machine physically to an Apple store or authorized service depot. Now. (wait, first replug all the fans, ok, Now).

    Uhhh...what did you think you were going to accomplish by taking it apart? Even if the noise stopped, you would still have to get something fixed/replaced. Now you most likely voided your waranty like CanadaRAM said and will have to pay for the repair if they find out. :confused:

    And that crackling sound you hear is your $1500 worth of G5 chips burning up as you run the machine without the watercooling pump attached...

    I certainly can't imagine why anyone would disconnect items in a new G5 Mac. The first thing would be to call Apple or take to your local Apple Store. You should have ask your questions before even opening your Mac. Hopefully you are just kidding. Would still recommend contacting Apple.

    i jsut unplugged them for like two seconds enought for the cpu to check all the fans i did them individually..to see which was the issue but after goin through all the fans connectors adn teh connector to what i assume if the pupm for the cpu the noise still exisits..perhaps theyrs a fan inside the power supply? i appresiate your positive replys to my initial post and am sorry fo rthe shortness adn lack of information of what was in it... total duration of time without pump or fans individually unplugged at seperate times was non nlonger thatn the time it takes to test all teh fans during power up(5 secs or so..)i dont have a wiring diagram to locate any electric motor in the are of where i hear the noise other than the pump OR maybe a fan for the power supply(if so is it controlled variably as withthe others?)

    What was said:
    Stop messing with your machine and take it in for service under warranty if you suspect a problem. At the very least you can confirm whether the noise you hear is normal for a G5 watercooled unit.

    Secondly: If you are not a native English speaker, OK, we can make allowances (especially because my own facility in any other language than English is laughable).

    If you were brought up speaking English however, then please make an effort at spelling, punctuation, and making your post coherent. One reason you are not getting answers is that people don't respond to posts they can't understand.

    A thirteen year old kid with few language and typing skills should not be taking apart a three thousand dollar computer.

    Only one or two people poked fun. The rest were trying to warn you that what you were doing was not the brightest idea. Even if you fixed 4,326 G5's and 434,549 motors, why would you attempt to fix it and risk a hugs loss of money when you could have brought it into an Apple store or called Applecare and gotten it fixed or gotten a replacement. Why take the risk when it's 100% not necessary?

    "I hope your computers die," is not a great thing to say on a Mac lover forum. :rolleyes:
