    Hey i just got my iMac G5 w/iSight and when i started software update the computer fans started to sound like a jet engine and have been sitting there like that for 10 minutes now. Is that normal? Has anyone else had this problem.

    Hello!

    Since I have a 20" iMac G5 on order I would definately like to hear how you fair with your new iMac. Thanks!

    By the way, after weeks of waiting my iMac is slated to ship on Monday, yet I am hearing that the machines are being sent from China. Did your get shipped from there? If so how long did it take to get to you once it shipped?

    Thanks again!

    Depends what you class as loud, but my 17inch is really quiet - even with CPU running at around 80% and ~65'C it's only just noticeable.

    Do you have a temp monitor widget installed - I've been occasionally monitoring mine, but it's not got over 65'C.
