How Loud Are Your Mac's Fans?

When they get hot, Macs turn on various internal fans to keep components cool. The noise can be annoying, but just how loud is it? If you have an iOS device with a built-in microphone, you can download one of many free sound meter apps (search on decibel in the App Store) and see if you're subjecting your ears to a truly unreasonable noise level.

 
 

PC Setup 1.0.6 Yanked

Send Article to a Friend

PC Setup 1.0.6 Yanked -- Apple pulled version 1.0.6 of PC Setup from distribution last week due to "several" unspecified problems. If you're running PC Setup 1.0.6, Apple recommends to switch back to the correct version of PC Setup for your machine. If you've got a DOS Compatible 6100 system, you'll want to use PC Setup 1.0.3; for 630 and 640 DOS Compatible machines, use PC Setup 1.0.5. Watch out: these are big archives (2.6 MB and 1.3 MB respectively), and they have those funky ultra-long Apple URLs: [GD]
