    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?

    The verex kits are pretty good. You might manage to find one on ebay if you are lucky.

    For watercooling inspirations look: Aqua or you can try Verax "quiet" MDD kit like this
    Edit:
    dazey was quicker with Verax ;)

    How to silence it: Sell it and buy a G5 or Intel machine.

    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.
