    Hi,

    When I got my 24" iMac, it was dead silent. Now, I can hear the fans on all the time. It's not terribly loud, but it's quite annoying, and I'm pretty sure they were much more silent when I first got teh system. What happened? Should I format? Thanks!

    Did you relocate your setup?
    Do you have the imac in a cool ventilated area?
    What programs do you have running...hack etc..
    Do you keep the imac up and running 24/7?



    Bless

    Hello,

    No, I did not. It's still on my desk, and I would say it's pretty well ventilated.
    Is there a way I can disable all of my currently running programs at start up?

    And no, I close it off at night, and it's not on all day.

    open system prefs>accts>login items. remove any apps you do not want at startup.

    Thanks for the reply

    I tried that, same problem. Im not sure it's even a problem. It just seems that last week when I got the iMac it seemed quieter
