So does your Nehalem Mac Pro make a buzzing noise? What about freezing?

    If so which model is it and where is it coming from?

    I'm about to pull the trigger on the 2.26GHz Octo Nehalem Mac Pro and it seems that so far I've seen 5-6 people complain about its buzzing noise.

    What is this noise they are talking about and is it that bad?

    Also if you have freezing issues as well, feel free to describe those symptoms.

    Do all 2009 Mac Pros make this buzzing noise or just some?

    I know its not very many people complaining as to thousands of others who has probably bought the new Nehalem Mac Pros. But I'm very sensitive to noise in my quiet room and I know it'll drive me crazy if these buzzing noises are really that bad.

    So far I've seen on here and on apple support forums of people complaining about some buzzing noise as to their systems locking up every 10-20 minutes of usages.

    Have you called Apple and asked regarding the buzzing noise?

    The best way to describe if the noise is normal or not is to video film your setup and upload it on YouTube.

    Super quiet

    I just got mine yesterday. It is my fourth desktop and by far the quietest. No freezing problems yet. So far I'm very happy.

    I dont even have the Mac Pro yet. I'm just trying to get some more info on this before I plunk down 3.2k for the 2.26GHz octad model.

    I just asked a new owner of the 2.26Ghz 8-core Mac Pro in a german forum.
    He mentioned that his Mac Pro is really quiet...no unusual noises whatsoever.
