Swapping the Case Fan in the Acer easyStore

If you are the owner of an Acer easyStore Home Server and have all 4 hard drive bays full then the temperature inside the case could be a little hot. One way of making things a little cooler is to replace the Acer’s case fan with a more efficient model which "Saxamo" from HomeServerLand did, resulting in a 10 degree drop in temperature.

    Presumably this then invalidates your warranty. Wouldn’t it be simpler to look at the drives you have inside and question their contribution to the excess heat? Seems to me that most excess heat is caused by old hard drives and switching to newer and larger hard drives removes this as an issue.
