Of course. I noticed that with the side cover off the hard
drive is not as cool. Probably due to the air flow not being
drawn over the drive, but in from the side of the cabinet.
It's an ASROCK K7S8XE Rev. 3.01 M/B with 3 DDR(1)
2 x 1GB PC2100 DIMMS, and a 512MB one.
I tested and replaced the BIOS battery as well. That was
getting a bit low, just under 3 volts. Been in the machine
since Jan 2006.
So far, testing each memory module in slot 1 has clocked no
errors. Each test ran for at least 20 hours.
I now have the 512MB module in slot 2, to test that slot.
Then I'll put it in slot 3 and test that one.
The first 1GB DIMM was tested with the side cover off.
So I might test that again, with the side cover on this
Once these test are completed, I'll post the results.
Thanks for all the help so far.
