Hey guys, My g5 has been getting loud lately. I am guessing it the fans but it never did this before. It is cold here so i can not imagine it is getting too hot. It kicks in every minute or soem time less.
Any suggestions?

The only think i did as of mantaince is run onyX.

thanks for the help.

What version of OS X are you running? In the Energy Saver Prefereneces->Options what is your Processor Performance set to? If it's set to Automatic, try setting it to Highest (yes, this sounds counter intuitive).

It's 10.3.8. Alot of people have been having this problem with there G5s, but many have not. Apple's bound to release a fix soon.

Search the forums for "10.3.8" and "fans" and you'll see.

Just FYI, you didn't need to reboot.
