    I noticed something strange right after I upgraded to 10.40.11 on my Power PC G5. The fan kicks in randomly (so it seems) it didn't used to do this except in the summer when room temperatures are higher.
    I downloaded a small app called Temperature Monitor to try monitoring but I'm not even sure what's normal or not when it comes to temperatures.

    for example , asI open more browser windows, I can see the temperature go up and around 50 C , the I can hear the fan starting to whine.

    Any one has a comment?

    Although the G5's did run rather warm, IMO 50C is a tad too high,

    Why not download SMC Fan Control ... :)

    What speed/model PowerMac G5 is it? Single or Dual processor or dual dual core, 1.8, 2.0, 2.3, 2.5?

    Also do a search in the forums here for G5 Normal Temperature and hopefully you'll find something. I've seen tons of posts here over the last few years relating to G5 temperatures.
