Dell GX240 running warm

Dec 12, 2006
  1. I've got a GX240 at work that seems to be running hot all of a sudden. with loads well under 10% (usually under 5% from checking the task manager) the CPU fan sounds like a jet and moves air like one too. i've checked and cleaned everything out so its not a blockage problem and i can't moniter anything with speedan because it either has no sensors or at least none speedfan can detect. the air coming out from the cpu fan is also a bit on the warm side but not super hot so it suggests heat production but i can't determine from where or why. if anyone has any insight or ideas on what may be causing this, let me know. thanks

    make sure that all fans are working and none are obstructed by cables when the cover is closed.
