    hi, i just bought this MP 3,1 2 x 2.80ghz
    It has been pushed to El capitan, i threw in the rams from my 1,1 (667 mhz rams)...

    But i find that there is a kind of spinning noise at the start up, you guys have any idea whats causing this ?



    also one of the fans makes a kind bearing noise...i think its the GPU's fan, but the initial sound need the be settled first. thanks
