    As already suggested re-applying thermal paste may improve the temperature, but you may also want to consider a larger heatsink + fan. The heatsink can make a huge difference.
    Its in a rack-mount server case!! Stupid fool who brought it before I started, we don't have a rack to put it in or the cooling system to deal with it!! Time to invest in something better I feel

    Very origional, its not even "cut" with scisors its actually just ripped! You should patent this and sll it to HP as a better solution to their current one!

    Just double checking - you do keep the lid on that server don't you? The lid is inntegral to the cooling as it forces air through the server like a tunnel.

    Might be nice to show it a vacuum cleaner before you put the lid back on. Eyew!

    o.O that server looks pretty clean! Not to mention, vacuum cleaners and sensitive electronic equipment is a bad idea. Compressed air is far safer.

    But not too high pressure air, as I've done it before and removed surface mount components!
