How to silence Dual 1.25 G4 PowerMac
Recently moved to a Mac Mini and now I'm looking for a way to silence the loud fans in my old PowerMac Dual 1.25 G4 Mirror Drive Door.
Can't bring myself to just dump it, but I never did like the amount of noise it made.
Has anyone tried water cooling this noise monster?

I had a Dual 800MHz.
That thing was a bit loud, lol. I was always stunned when I powered it down and everything got real quiet.
One of the better Macs I've had though. Thing was a champ.
Used it until I upgraded to a dual G5 2.0.

Verax Fan kit
I have just recently replaced my G4. The Verax kit for the power supply and other fans are left over. If you are interested I would sell it, leave me a message.

Thanks for all the advice and help, I decided to move the G4 to my office and use it to test and support the Mac users on our Novell/SUSE network.
Upgraded my 2009 Mini with dual monitors, 4Gigs RAM, 7200 320Gig HD, and a Magic Mouse. Works great and doesn't make a sound.
