weird thing just started happening to my 2000+ rig. Just yesterday it started rebooting because the temperature gets too high (55 degrees). Anyway it never did do this and i have had this setup for about 2 months. I have 3 case fans (1 on window side, and 2 on the back) and the volcano 9, Antec PSU.

The top one in the back is sucking air out and the other two are shooting air in the case. But i can feel the heat if i touch the window side of the case...feels really warm. Just wandering if this could possibly be the 2 harddrives in raid creating this heat. What should i do to cool this rig down?

T.I.A.

Is your HS and fans clean of dust...Any dirty filters?? Also with cold weather setting in are you running the heat? I had to close the ac/heat vents in the comp room and kitchen because when my wife thinks it's cold:rolleyes: :rolleyes: she hits the heater and within minutes my comp overheats..
