Well i have the 2.7 dual powermac with the standard config, yes even the ram. The problem im now running into is that the the computer gets so hot sometimes that my entire room can raise a few degrees. Its very uncomfortable to say the least. Also the fans seem to run a little hard here and there even when im just having one app open like safari as this very moment. if anyone can please tell me if uping the ram or will help this issue (by taking of a load of the cpus) or other solutions to help my powermac not turn me into a burnt crisp please respond.
