I decided to do something about the high temperatures in my home server today. Seems the last few days (temperatures around 30 celcius) the disks and cpu got quite hot. I bought a Coolermaster TLF-S12 at MyCom. They had no boring normal black 12 centimeter fans in stock, just ones with blue or red leds. I'm no casemodder (brrr!) so I'm not too happy about the blue leds, there is now a blue glow behind the server. I put an 8 centimeter fan in the front of the case to suck more air in. And I redid the thermal paste on the CPU. The new cooling does cool the harddisks a bit better but the cpu still shoots up to 80 degrees celcius (yes, way too hot!) on high load. I guess I need to look at the nest of IDE cables it does live in. Some other time, it's way too hot up in the attic.
