If you suspect a heat problem, try these

by w2ktechman In reply to HD temperature

1. use canned air (gas) to clean out the case and **** excess crap off of the fans (preferably outside or it can be messy).

2. Remove 1 of the case sides and add an additional Internal Fan
keep the side of the case off and have a regular fan blowing air into the case (short term).
Do the problems still occur?
