    Just wanted to ask while i wait for my new 27 imac, if someone has noticed there hdd rumbling, or if its gone.

    I remember the 27 1tb had the most problems so would love to hear from the new owners

    Mine's very quiet, can barely hear it at all. Only thing I hear is if my external hdd are on and those are pretty quiet themselves!

    I have the base 27" and it is very quiet, less noise than the 24" i previously used.

    That depends on which HD you get, some are louder than others.

    Played Black Ops today for a while and the system never even ramped the fans, hit 70C max on the CPU.
