Reset fan behavior after 10.3.8 update
Authored by: scotfl on Mar 07, '05 06:39:42PM

The iMac G4's fan always runs. You can't pack that much computer into that small a space without actively moving air through it. (The iMac G5s always have the fan on as well, but they run at greater range of fan speeds than the G4's).

Reset fan behavior after 10.3.8 update

My iMac's fan didn't run constantly until some 10.3 update. Ever since then it runs 100% of the time. It used to run like my PowerBook - it used to only come on during periods of heavy CPU load.

No it didn't like it is now. The fan is multispeed. Mine used to be whisper quiet, only revving up under heavy processor load. Now it is on high most of the time. This is a definante change to the iMac behavior.
