This only applies, as far as I know, if you have a 166mHz Multia...
Look on the bottom, along the edge that's next to the power supply. Granted,
this may not be the cause, but it's a known problem.
The prevention for this chip roasting is to either replace the fan
with a higher output one, or clip the thermal resistor off of the existing
fan (yellow wires to a little red resistor), so it runs faster.

! I had removed the internal hard drive and ran with the board
! no fully inserted into the case to allow additional air flow.
