Default Noisy G5

Hi all.

I'm trying to breath some life into an old imac G5 they're throwing out at work, so I put OpenBSD on it. The install was super fast, most impressive and easy. But I have an issue with the fans blasting at full speed.

I've search around and found some old mailing list stuff from 2009 claiming there is no fan control in OpenBSD, but I wondered if this was still the case?

No way I can sit using the machine with that amount of noise!

I'm using OpenBSD 5.3, imac g5 (not isight). Any thoughts or clarification of possibility would be appreciated.
