BTW thanks for the feedback guys.
What johnyyluu meant is that, except the graphics card fan, all other fans in the G5 (and other Macs too) are controlled by the mainboard, and partly by the OS. that's why a firmware or OS update can change the fan's behaviour, except for the graphics card. And, as far as I know, the fans of the powersupply aren't controlled by the system either...

But all other fans are.
