Have already replaced the 120mm exhaust and 80mm in the psu with some rather nice blue neon fans. Am struggling to find a quiet 60mm fan that can push around 23 cfm onto my heatsink, in my QS867. I am in the UK and 60mm fan choices are limited vantec is about all i can find, but it doesn't push enough air. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

G4 Sawtooth Fans

I was considering getting some newer and quieter fans for my G4 sawtooth 350 MHz, since I have a fan that sounds like it's got serious laryngitis when I shut the computer off for more than a few hours. It runs fine, as long as it stays running... but obviously it's ready to kark it and needs a replacement. What better reason (other than because one feels like it) to swap out the fans for better and quieter ones?

An article regarding fans in G4 systems I found educational:

The Quietsilver article hosted by Applefritter, is very helpful and encouraging...

Some questions remain, however... From what I gather from the article above, the Quietsilver main case fan is 120 mm square by 25 mm deep...

But I was wondering if the G4 Sawtooth has the same size fans as the Quicksilver model? I don't want to dismantle my computer just yet, just to take a mesuring tape to the fan bits.

The CPU fan is 60 mm square by ? Looks like I have a little leeway on that subject but I'd like to be sure anyway

How about the power supply fan? Measurements, or should I bother with it? I am thinking "no" unless it's the fan starting to give out on me.

Any suggestions, information to add help me along with this project?

Thanks in advance... Mac OS
