Mainly I found out that the machine was overheating, because it was in a very
hot room (the power supply fans were going VERY fast).  But, since the machine
has 4 fans, it still is a little noisy, and I'm trying to reduce it's noice
level (I'll try to turn the fan that blows onto the RAM chips off, and keep
the cpu fan on).  But mainly it's the power supply fans.

The machine does automatically control fan speed by temperature sensors.
