    1. Reboot After Wake
    2. Louder Fan

    I read on this forum about that 2 problems, I dont receive my macpro yet, I hope dont found that problems on my mac pro. If your mac pro dont have any of 2 problems you would be so happy.

    Any other problems to the fix to do list?

    I post my iStat of my PowerMac G5 dualcore 2.3 for compare the fans with the mac pro, I want more silence in my mac pro, this g5 its a little louder.

    Please post your istat screenshots of New MacPro! :)

    My mac often crashes with weird patterns like those:

    Either after trying to disable the screen saver, or when I do certain graphic related tasks (such as using QuickLook's function to view several image files at the time, or trying to use glDrawPixels with some bitplanes disabled).

    It's really anoying. So I am not happy, despite not having the problems you mentioned.

    You need to get your gpu looked at.

    I'm guessing it's the graphics card too. It could be a temperature problem with the fans (my old radeon in my pc couldn't keep cool enough and would crash with similar patters)

    Either that or it's evolved self-awareness and is trying to communicate (and less face it our mac pro's are now so fast it's possible :p )

    I suspected problems with either the graphics hardware, or the drivers. But currently I can't give my mac away for repairs, so I'll try to live with it.

    I don't think it's a temperature problem, since the error is reproducable and does not depend on load. (It could be that there are two types of errors... since I don't get the noise every time)

    Whoa those fans are really loud!!

    My mac pro never goes over 800-850rpm and usually stays at 500-750rpm and with heavy usage I've never seen it go above 850rpm..

    did you use migration assistant? I used it for mine from my macbook, and I had smc fan control on auto start, and it was upping the fans (and made it think 1800 rpm is it's default speed even when smc wasn't on) if you have deleting smc may help.
