9. Place the fan assembly back inside the G70 unit and connect it to the Sony internal connector this way (you must check that wires colors vs SilenX connector housing is OK):

10. Wrap 7cm of electrician tape all around the connector assembly:

11.  Place the fan and housing assembly back in place (check that lower tabs fit their slots) and replace the two black screws to secure it :

12. Update the rest of the fans (2) exactly like the first one:

All noise measurements were made before and after the fan replacement at a 1m distance from the back of the G70 with it's outer plastic shell removed (ie: worst case scenario).

Here is the results :

- Noise floor : 34dBA
- With original Sony fans: 47.4dBA
- With new SilenX fans: 39.4dBA

Overall noise Gain : 8dBA    Not that bad! :)

That's it! The fans should all run fine when the unit is powered up. The big difference being how G70 is now even quieter than before. Enjoy!
