Seriously, most of the year my computer’s fan noise can be kept to a minimum by keeping the CPU running at reduced speed via the Energy Saver control panel, but when the weather is hot the computer is hot so that fan blows practically full speed. The first generation G5s have something like eight fans in it and I’m sure most of them are blowing as I type this.

When I put the computer in sleep it’s ridiculous how much quieter the room becomes. Thing is that I really can’t justify an upgrade of any kind because for all intents and purposes it’s totally fine, the fan is just REALLY REALLY LOUD.
