    I saw some threads mentioning these but are those just a few specific cases?

    1. Does the riMac get really hot?

    2. Are the fans noisy?


    I am about to purchase the riMac with 4.0 GHz, 16GB ram, 512 flash, and m295x, and just wanted to make sure that these problems aren't common/normal.

    my iMac 5k does not get any warmer than my 2012 i7/680mx iMac. Fan noise is the same, near silent when just doing normal computing, only ramping up when processors are fully loaded or GPU is fully loaded.

    Both are SSD only, so the only noise/moving parts are the fans.

    Thanks! I was hoping that it would be quiet and that these threads are just specific cases.

    I'm actually surprised how quiet and cool it stays while doing intense video activities
