Is it the case fan or the power supply fan? I'm thinking it's your PS fan which is an integral part of the PS. I'd suggest replacing the entire PS.<br><br>G4 Power Supply<br><br>Price looks reasonable at this supplier. I forgot where I ordered my replacement PS from, or I'd link to that source too.<br><br>Edit: Found it: Mac-Pro Store<br><br>
Thanks for your help and for directing me to where I can purchase the equipment.<br><br>I'm checking out how the power supply and its fans are working on my Mac and I'm considering if I should replace it.<br><br>I think have found the right "CPU fan" —which is the one that keeps turning off— on Ebay, and may replace that.<br><br>Lots of thanks. <br><br><br>Pablo<br><br>
