It sounds like you're missing the fans in the hard disk "trays." You
should be able to bypass that by connecting one of the lines in the
connector to ground... I don't remember which and can't look right now,
but I think it was black to yellow. Of course, that could short out the
power as well, so I'm not sure I can recommend trying it. ; )
