G5 Agony follow-up

Ok...I won't even bore you with my last 2 posts regarding my new (to me) OWC G5. Suffice it to say, it was returned and I now have a nice shiny new (to me) G5 in its place. Many thanks to OWC Larry for working with me and helping me get this square. If only all businesses where as helpful.

At any rate, I never figured out the problem with the initial G5. However, I had no frame of reference for G5 behavior as this was my first. Now that I have the replacement, I noticed a HUGE difference between the two. The first one that had all the KPs was LOUD LOUD LOUD. Fans were on A LOT. Now, like I said, I had never used a G5 so i didn't know that was NOT right. The new one I have is near whisper quiet. At any rate, I've installed my new 300 gb seagate (w/SSC disabled), installed a fresh Tiger, and will probably migrate stuff tonight.

I just hope I haven't jinxed myself by letting you all know that everything is AOK before I've actually started using the G5 fully. All indications are that it will be good. Thanks again to OWC.
