Hi,  I have a old 2007 mac mini that I recently had taken to best buy to upgrade the ram, after the upgrade it is always loud and Istat says that the fan is at ~5500 RPM and another mac (which is silent) says only 1800 rpm under the same (and higher) workload. the loud mac has temperature of (according to Istat):

hard drive:81 degrees F

CPU: 94 F

CPU Heatsink: 83 F

Northbridge 1: 85 F

Northbridge 2: 81 F

the computer is cool to the touch

 

Please help me slow down the overactive fan on this mac, ~patrick
