Fan noise and/or chirping in earlier G5 Duals
Authored by: maiklust on Jun 01, '06 10:29:15AM

I agree that the fans are not cooling intelligent in Automatic Mode. I don't have a loud fan noise in Highest Mode, though. Even the 2 running mlucas processes for the GIMPS Project don't turn the fans up.

So, despite higher energy consumption, my setting is Highest. The chirping when in nap mode went away, after exchanging my ATI Graphics card with an Nvidia from one of the first 1.8 Ghz G5. I don't need much graphics performance luckily.
