I recently bought an MDD Dual 1.42GHz for $50 U.S. with a bad power supply so me and my friend have modified an atx power supply to work in it, we then put the guts of the atx power supply in the MDD power supply case. but since I reinstalled the original fans it's still a wind tunnel and I would like to know what size these are and how powerful they need to be or perhaps where I could even find a quiet version of these fans cheap.

Quality does not equal cheap alas.

Have a look at this link discussion fitting quality Verax 65mm fans:-

MDD G4 Cooling Mod

http://www.dooyoo.co.uk/pc-accessories/verax/

Also look for the rubber fan mountings for quietness.

Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
