    The Mysterious Case of the Over Heating Server

    My admin server keeps going into thermal shutdown.

    Iíve stripped the server, cleaned the filters, fans and heat sink. I have checked the fans are spinning and producing air flow and they speed up when the server gets hot.
    Under the heaviest of load it hits 86c and restarts.
    I canít for the life of me figure out whatís causing it to reach its upper limit as it all seems to be ok.
    Anyone got some ideas?

    Thanks

    Yes, and its red hot to the touch so I think the efficiency of the thermal paste seems ok.

    The airflow over the CPU from the front 2 fans seems good and there is nothing blocking its path.
