do have on hand the suppplies to clean off the old heatsink goo (I use 
alcohol pads for this), and some fresh heatsink goop

check all fans when its powered off that they spin easily.  I've seen 
fans that were still spinning but felt a little stiff, and failed not 
long thereafter.  and of course, clean out most of the dust that tends 
to collect everywhere.
