    I get fans revving at bootup, but I'm 90% sure that I got that before the latest update. So far, I haven't noticed any other odd occurences of this issue, but I've only had the update installed since last night. :)

    I don't yet have a Mac to confirm this but #macosx on freenode has this in topic ... "Apparently 10.3.8's OpenGL can make finder crash. Not that Finder doesn't crash anyways.... :p".

    lol, I am still holding off on the last security update cause it changes apache and I am not sure if thats going to affect the entropy.ch install of php5 that I have. In theory it shouldnt, but you can never really be sure if you arent doing a source rebuild

    Just an update on the fan noise issue with 10.3.8. I have noticed the problem today, my fans started going crazy while all I was doing was browsing with Safari.

    I've seen it suggested that going into System Preferences --> Energy Saver --> Options and setting Processor Performance to 'Highest' instead of 'Automatic' will take care of it. I've just done that about 10 minutes ago, so I haven't had enough time to really see if that works. I'm just wondering if changing that setting is OK for the computer. I don't know much about what the setting does. Any opinions?

    I always thought that the Processor Performance was available only on iBooks and PowerBooks? o_0

    When set to auto, it will usually reduce CPU power when it's not needed or when running lower on battery, this conserves power and extends battery life. You can manually set it to high/low though to have the most cpu power, or most battery life,

    Well, it's a preference on the G5. I don't suppose it would be included if it could be harmful to the processor to make those changes.

    I've read the fan rev up thing for the G5's is part of the latest update lowering the cpu temp temp for threshold. I don't have a G5 (or any Mac at present) so I'm just going by what I've read.

    the G5 can step down as well, preserving energy and getting the temperature down.
