I have an old G5 Tower that developed that leaking coolant problem - I stopped using it and it's been sitting around for a while.


Recently, I booted it via Firewire in Target mode and I can access the Hard drive, but after a few minutes the fan kicked in big time.


Anybody know if it is possible to disconnect the fan and just use the Tower and as a big Hard Drive enclosure???


If it is possible then ....


1. How do I disconnect it?


2. Will it over-heat. I was thinking of putting  3 x old hard drives in it?


3. Would it be grossly in-effecient from an energy point of view?


Many thanks
