Hello all,
I tried searching quite a bit but couldn't find any [up to date] information on fan/thermal support for the Quad PowerMac G5s (2.5GHz). Does anyone know if it works, without the fans running full blast at all times? Ubuntu's live CD keeps fans on at all times, and the latest 2008 beta Gentoo minimal CD does as well (because they are live CDs? or because I had the minimal CD?).

I know that for a long time the fans were working just fine on the dual G5s, however the Quads changed something -- does it work?

Thank you all!!

My quad seems to work fine. Consider installing a s stage and then compiling a kernel. if you catch me on irc I could share my config if you like.

Thermal control on my Quad works perfectly. Better than OSX, even (slower default fan speeds = more silent). There is, however, a problem that the default windfarm driver won't control a second pump. I understand that other Quad users didn't run into this problem, so mine seems to be somewhat of a dual-pump freak machine. Adding a single line of code in the kernel windfarm smu driver will fix this, however.

Ask for details if you have the same problem.

It could be that I have the same problem with the pumps. Can you have a look?
