still having (terrible) fan noise one month on
Authored by: oliverlangan on May 17, '06 10:38:15AM

Well, eventually I took my iMac G5 (2gHz, no iSight) to the Genius Bar in SF and told them exactly all the things I had done to eliminate fan noise. The girl working on it said "well, I guess there is no need to diagnostics!" and they took it in and swapped in a new logic board.

That was about 2 months ago: the machine was wonderfully silent at first, but now, alas, the fan noise is coming back. I have tried all the tricks again, but they don't last for long: last night just reading email was enough to kick the fans into high gear! Armed with my knowledge that Apple _knows_ about this problem, and the fact that they fixed it once before, I am headed back to the Genius Bar. Thank goodness I got AppleCare on this unit.
