This is probably only applicable to UK forum members.

Without going into the sordid details, I am pursuing a claim against Red Submarine because their Dual Xeon system has inadequate cooling. They refuse to answer my support calls so I am looking to other customers to see if mine is an isolated case.

With a processor-intensive project, the motherboard temperature rises to 100 degrees C within 3 or 4 minutes and the system freezes to protect itself.

Even a project continuously running at 30-40% climbs inexorably towards thermal shutdown over 20-25 minutes.

If you own one of these systems, I would be very interested if yours has exhibited the same problems or, if you want to test it out for your own peace of mind. You may not realise your system has a problem until you put it under a bit more stress.

Any responses would be greatly appreciated.
