  1. Hey everyone, time for a new question (it's been a problem filled day for me)

    In this recent heat wave here in southern california (100-120 degrees where i live) i was having problems keeping my PC cool... I went to the point where i had to open the side and aim a fan into the case to keep it relatively cool. well after a week of doing my normal thing on the PC it froze on me, then on restart it said there was no HDD installed. I freaked out, but i unplugged the HDD and put it into another of the four SATA ports i have and it started just fine. My questions is, is it possible for a SATA port to burn out cause of the ambient heat?
