    I upgraded my iMac G3 from 256mb ram to a maximum 1GB and I'm sure it is now noisier, the fan and the hard drive. Why would this be?

    Do you have a slot loading G3 iMac? They don't have a fan in them.

    if the harddrive is getting louder chances are its getting closer to die ive had many old harddrives where theyd get really loud then die, however i highly doubt the ram made the harddrive louder
