    i posted this in mac basics and didn't get any responses so i'm giving it a try here.

    i have a Blue and White G3 with a 1 GHz Powerlogix G3 processor. i want to install a fan on the heat sink. does anyone know of a fan that will fit and not have any interference problems with the case?

    thanks

    You beat me to it, jessica.!

    Another option is to drill one (or otherwise secure it) into your heat sink, I have done that with upgrades before. Though if your heat sink is the stock G3 one, you really don't have much to work with...

    For that kinda cash ($13+ shipping), you could go to your local peecee shop/BustBuy & buy several of those fans, then go to home depot or lowes & get the screws for ~.79

    thats what I did with my smurfbox, only my fan was slightly thinner :)
