Does anybody know if the current 1.25 Ghz PowerMac G4 line-up offered at the online Apple store still has the noise problem with the fans?

Actually, I've heard that they're pretty quiet...

One of my G4's I use for work is the dual 1.25 and I don't even notice that it is on. But for some strange reason when you first boot it up all the fans kick on but after boot I forget that it is running.

I have also noticed that with the 23" display pluged in it that is is a little bit louder. That probably goes without saying.

It is hot as hell though!!!

My dual 1GHz PM has had the new powersupply and fans fitted. It's pretty quiet though far from silent. It was a lot louder when it got into the high nineties recently. Even when it's quiet it does throw out a lot of heat...
