One more update: I exchanged the 04W3269 (Toshiba) fan with a 04W3270 (Delta) fan, which is substantially quieter. Now the machine is perfect, well worth what it cost. -- public key: https://www.svensemmler.org/2A632C537D744BC7.asc fingerprint: DA59 75C9 ABC4 0C83 3B2F 620B 2A63 2C53 7D74

Hi Sven, That's great info, thank you! Other than these issues mentioned above, your fhd mod worked smoothly? As in, no need to add change anything during the heads build process? I will certainly let you know how it went although, I will probably be back asking more stupid questions in the
