    It has obviously been particularly hot recently, but I noticed yesterday that my Pace v2 with upgrade 160GB drive was making quite a racket. The fan was running (which is a first on my box as far as I know). The major noise seemed to be coming form the drive. Has anyone else being experiencing similar (presumably due to the heat) and should I be worried? :rolleyes:

    If you're sure the noise was coming from the drive, be worried.

    The box is back to near silence this morning. Perhaps it was the fan, although the noise did seem to be much more than that little fan could produce?

    You might have had some debris or an insect fouling the fan, making the noise.
