I'm preparing to re-install Mac OS X 10.5 on my Power Mac G5 Quad.


I purchased it second hand in 2009 and it didn't have original Apple disks so I purchased Mac OS X 10.5 disks from Apple.


I've been told that I'll have problems with the fans if I don't use the disk that came with the computer.


I'm doing this because one of the four cores is reporting that it's hotter (and at a slightly higher current) than the others (including the other core under the same die).


I've checked that there's no coolant leak.


Do I HAVE to use the original Apple G5 Power Mac Mac OS X Installer for the fans to work correctly? Wouldn't the full box set of Mac OS X 10.5 have all the optimised tools for the platform on which it's installed?
