Noisy Front fan replacement.


I have a Mac Pro 1,1 with a noisy front fan.

I think its just tired over time and needs replacement.

Where do I look for a spare part for it? (europe preferably)

And hopefully a guide on how to replace it too.. :)

And other question:

does it make sense to upgrade CPU's in it or or not?

Try looking up Apple Authorized Service Center with your location to find someone who can at least service your system. They maybe willing to order the needed part assembly from Apple. You may also find other sources (used parts) as well.

I would wait on upgrading the CPU's. Rumor has it Apple is about to introduce a newer Mac Pro system, which you may want to upgrade to.

The 1st gen. MP's use a different CPU modules than the current systems, so your choices will be limited.

I just replaced the processors in my 2006 Mac Pro and they've provided a big boost. Lots of instructions on the web, just google it. The original processors were the 2.66 Dual-Cores and I swapped them with 2 x 2.66 Quad-Cores: two X5355 processors that cost a total of Euro 120 shipped. The prices have really come down.

As to fans, I have what sounds like a noisy one that makes a "plasticky" sound, as if it's going to rev up, but then stops. But it isn't the front or rear fan. I can hear the noise about the middle point of the top of the computer, as if behind the hard drives. Is there a fan there?

Does anyone know where to get a service manual for the 2006 Pro?
