My MacMini G4 is silent and i have heard that the previous iMac C2 were dead silent...

In a quiet room it probably had some fan noise.
A 7600 machine might be louder (because hotter) but I don't know.
Hmmm, I have a 24" 2.4GHz Al iMac about 5 inches from my wall and it is still dead silent. iStat shows my fans at 1200/1200/700. It's warm, but not hot, to the touch.But I noticed putting the system 2 feet from a wall actually solves the problem. Now that's great if your desk is in the middle of the room
