There’s a QuickTime movie that compares a Dual 450 GHz G4 (which was a very quiet model) and a new Dual 1.25 GHz. As it turns out, the Dual 450 produces mostly a fan noise (which means: you hear the air). The Dual 1.25 has even less fan noise (air), but there is a [pitched] sound, a mid-to-high-frequency-sound. Germany’s “Mac-TV.de” is hosting this video (6.5 MB) for free, but just for one day (because of the traffic).

Then the Dual 1.25 with maximum load. Then again with normal load. Ed: Thanks a lot, Joern! Anyone out there got a server that could serve as a permanent home? -PK
