Originally the MDD G4 Mac was noisy, then Apple offered a fan and power supply
swap program that made it much quieter.  The program was optional, so if an
MDD owner didn't take advantage of it, an MDD Mac could still have the
original noisy fans/power supply.  Here are the details:

Power Mac G4 Power Supply Exchange Program Announcement
The Power Mac G4 Power Supply Exchange Program offers owners of Power Mac G4
(Mirrored Drive Doors) computers the option of reducing the operating acoustic
level of their computers by exchanging their original power supplies and
system fans for new, quieter versions. Participation in the Power Supply
Exchange Program is optional.
The Power Supply Exchange Program kit is available at no charge, with a
shipping and handling fee of US$19.95 or equivalent local currency. The kit
contains the following items:
 - Power supply (360 W)
 - System fan
 - Allen key (2.5 mm)
 - Installation instructions (in various languages)
This program begins on February 21, 2003 and ends June 30, 2003.
