    Cool Problem with G4 processor
    for some strange reason my G4 has been making weird noises for about a week now. I've done everything I can figure out. I even took the processor off and reinstalled it. It sounds like an old car trying to go up hill. Any suggestions?

    Specs:
    Imac 27" Retina 5K, 512GB flash memory, 3.3GHz, 16GB memory, macOS Sierra beta.
    If it is a clicking type of sound sounds like HDD problems. Can you go to Disk Utility, select the disk and see what the SMART status is?

    If all is well should say 'verified'.
