    I think something is going wrong with rear fan in my Mac Pro.

    When it's spinning low it sounds a bit weird.

    I found original fan have a 3-pin connector:

    Can I replace it with something much better like Noctua fan ?

    I'd love to replace all my fans with ones that produce less noise.

    Is this even possible on a 2006 Mac Pro?

    Sure it is. You can either buy Apple VAR fans or you can select you're own perhaps better models.

    I would buy Noctua 12 cm :)

    How do I remove these Apple fans from memory cage ?

    Do you have any photos ?
