    Despite having used a 1.8Ghz G5 for eight years I'm in the dark on this.

    Was wondering if there is anything similar to g4fancontrol for G5s…

    Do I even want to mess with this?

    My current DC 2.3 seems to be doing fine controlling the fans and is quiet so if I am inviting ruin I certainly want to know before I install something that screws everything up.

    OK. That pretty much answers that then.

    Thanks!

    If you want them running at full blast, take the white piece of tape off the bottom of the air deflector :D

    No, no. I was just wondering if I could tweak it a bit. Like the freebie fan controllers you can find for the MBPs.

    Yeah I know, it was more of a joke, have you ever heard a G5 without an air deflector :D

    That's a G5 with full blast fans right? :)
