  1. hi all-

    I have an old Imac Rev. D (just for play) and after it has been on 4 about an hour or so it is very hot, i didnt know if this was normal or not then when it shuts off , as its coolong down, its sounds like bacon frying from the sizzling it makes

    Spec:
    96MB RAM
    6GB HD
    CD drive
    OS 8.6

    No that is way too hot. Do you smell plastic/insulation burning? It's probably the PSU, if it was the CPU it would be dead.
