Modifying a MDD G4 to run at 30 dBa - 08/05/04 12:06 AM

Another mod for quieting a G4. For $60.00, the modder reduced the decibel level of his G4 MDD from 50dBa to 30dBa. He also lists a quick mod for $2 that will reduce the dBa from 50 to 40ónot as good, but definitely inexpensive.

Long article...

I took a slightly different approach that was very effective, though not exactly the cheapest option http://www.juansolo.demon.co.uk/MacBearding/ShhhMDD.html

Which was all well and good until I fitted a Radeon 9800pro http://www.juansolo.demon.co.uk/MacBearding/ShhhMDD2.html

Still it's not quiet enough. Not bad and hugely quieter than before, but I'm going for silent. A far more radical solution is currently underway that I'll submit to the mod challenge when it's done. Hopefully in the next week or so...


Oh and hi! [waves]
