I have been searching around for information on G4 MDD cooling but have so far only found ads and information on kits and products that don't seem to be available any longer.

Can anyone tell me where I can find some information on how to better cool my G4 using hardware that is still on the market?

Go by PCI fans. Thats what i did, i put in 2 of them and it dropped my cpu temps by 15 Deg. Not to mention they are universal and cheap. I got my 2 for 3.45 each and they move 80 cfm each.

There are some simple mods people have done in the past, mostly involving adding more fans in the case:

There's also the watercooling option!

The links are find, however if you do not want to use the verax fan mod you can use the Zalman 80mm slim fans. They are a little bit less effectife but easer to install because you will not to put out your complete cpu. Drop me a note if you need more info on my zalman mod. The Zalman mod gave me 2-3 degrees and a more stable and cooler G4:rolleyes:
