Good question, I have no idea! How do I find out?

Just bought a standard 500 as well.

Wow where did you find that, and for how much?

Cost me just over £200, eBay again!!!
Local to me so no postage.

Mine runs a dual 500MHz G4 from a tower. Runs very well, but requires additional cooling in the form of a fan placed beneath the unit. This forces air up through the entire assembly, which cools not only the processor, but also the Radeon 7500 graphics card that I popped in there. So i decided not to opt for the standard basefan installation.

 

One of my future projects will be to construct a suitable wooden enclosure to hide the fan, a sort of Cube stand.

so, the processor you are using is from a regular sawtooth PowerMac?

I think it was from an AGP Graphics machine. There is some surgery needed, including a shim to make contact between the heatsink and the processors, but it  works just fine. It hasn't crashed once in many months of use.

The fan for cooling is critical.
