Summary
that one the top right fan on the G5 iMac (original series) was noisier than another, (first generation) changed design. One had 36 blades and even more surprised to find it was a design change in gave an annoying whine, while the top right fan. other design that has 29 blades (a prime) gives a much less annoying hum.
