So I just traded my pismo g3 for a g4 550 gigabit ti. They are both in the same condition. So I got a good deal I think, anyway....


I have been using the g4 ALOT and **** this thing gets hott. Why is that? Is this normal? I dont remember my Pismo ever getting this hott.

The speakers and power button are really quite warm. Not so much you cant touch them.. But seems warmer than I think they should.

ALso I hear the processor fan going on more often than on the Pismo.

I understand they are totally different machines but...I just want to know is this normal? Should I be concerned?

I still rarely...actually, never...have had mine hot enough to complain about...maybe I'm expecting mroe heat...or because I'm from Texas, heat doesn't really bother me....but I definently dont' think they get that hot...a bit...but not enough to even talk about really.

It was warm enough for me to use it as a ghetto-fied space heater during the winter. Jeez, being the valley.. when it gets cold.. IT'S COLD!! All I needed to do was touch the darn thing and I was happy. :) Whenever it got cool.. just open up Final Cut Pro.. har har har.. :rolleyes:.
