I have the abovementioned server at my workplace for around 4 years now.
Its been running fine all along, but recently its been giving me a "System too hot or has lost cooling" message whenever there are processor intensive tasks running, and the server shuts down automatically.

It restarts and the main system fan blows quite powerfully for ~15 mins until it boots up again.

I've opened the case and checked all fans, removed accumulated dust, etc. Everything seems to be fine.

The problem still persists. The ambient temperature of my office is at a cool ~20 C. I'm at a loss as to why this is happening. Any suggestions? The specs are 2x Intel Xeon processors, 3Gb ram and a 160Gb SCSI hdd.

check that cpu fans aren't loose and re apply thermal paste.

^^ replace thermal paste and ensure heatsinks/fans are secure.
