I've just bought a dual 1GHz G4 PowerMac MDD off of ebay. I can imagine after a few years the original thermal paste or whatever it is shot (dried up) by now. So fresh application of Arctic Silver Fox grease should help out ---- are there any links to removal / service of CPU heat sinks for MDDs :confused:

Try iFixit.com They have a lot of instructions for mac related stuff.

Removing the heatsink was one of the easiest things to do when I swapped mine a few years ago when installing a Verax kit into my dual 1.4. Installing the new power-supply fans was far more awkward.

You should find some good info on xlr8yourmac.com. (http://www.xlr8yourmac.com/systems/MDD_copper_heatsink_swap/mdd_copper_heatsink_swap.html#storytop)
