Death of a Fan

Not quite as ominous as the subject would make it appear. This morning, the workstation had a temperature of 114 degrees Fahrenheit. Not that high, but higher than normal. I opened up the side panel to find that the 120mm case fan was not spinning. Actually, I should have realized that earlier by looking at the FanSpeed tray icon (a great little utility, by the way). I then embarked on a journey to replace the fan. More on that later. But now the machine is running at 99 degrees again. Phew!!
