Currently searching for fans.
Would I be better off just going for a quiet non-PWM fan? Such as this one?

Much quieter than the others but then again it will always run at that level and moves much less air.
The stock fans are these:

They move a lot of air but holy decibels batman!
I just dont know but I am leaning towards the PWM fan

If it were me, I'd keep the Delta's and just slow them down. Drop a PCI bracket fan controller in there and call it a day!

I did a little more searching, trying to find a decent 60mm PWM fan is not easy. The cooljag 60x25 is about the only one that fits, and you definitely do not want the 60x15, they're useless. You might also look around for a San Ace 60x38 maybe check over at Newark or ebay.

To those still following my indecisions:
I've set up the stock delta's with a 3pin connection (what they were originally) and will attempt to adjust the speed with speedfan or something similar. Initial tests were poor but I havent really figured out speedfan for setting speeds yet.
Failing above I will pick up a PCI fan speed controller to control the stock fans.
Failing that I will order up two new 4pin fans.
Those with questions re:the mod check out the thread I started about it. I will update that soon with more pics http://www.overclock.net/case-mod-wo...c-g5-matx.html

I think you made the right choices... unfortunately, I know nothing about or care for Speedfan. Good luck, and I'll be watching your other thread

Looks like it will be option 2. I can't find anything that will recognize and allow for fan speed adjustment. Speedfan doesnt recognize though HWmonitor sees the fan.

Very nice! I've got an old 1.8 PPC G5 I've been wanting to do that with. I'm glad to see some one has done it with out butchering the case!

Throw a cold cathode or two inside there and watch the nice lights being emitted from the front and rear.

You could cut the bottom out and mount a downward facing Noctua over the PSU, and then eliminate the two sixty millimeter ones. So long as you capped off the end it should force the heat out the back. If you do it right, it'll look just as nice as the rest of your build.
