    I was wondering is it ok to run a old iMac 600mhz G3 24/7 running something like folding? Will this over heat? These old imacs do not seam to have a fan. And they also get very hot after a couple hours full CPU. Would this be ok?

    We used to run 2 iMac's at the store I woked at as POS machines and they ran 24/7. We never had any problems with them. The old iMacs disperse their heat through the holes at the top around the handle. As long as thoes are not covered you should be fine.
