I was clumsy, and while doing some lock picking practice I let go of the wiper tensioner, and it went "ping!" nad flew off under my desk.
Can I see it? Nope, it's there somewhere, but so are a load of cables. And I just know that if I go rummaging through cables too much, something is going to get a sudden power down ... so I'll shut it all down first. Tools ... NAS ... Login ... Admin. Oo! The CPU is a bit warm @65C and 1200RPM on the fan, I'll have a look at that as well.

Start shifting stuff and the tensioner drops into view. Great. Now, let's see to the NAS.
That's easy to say, harder to do as it appears to be a big ball of dust and cat fur ... Hoover time!

Unplug, dismantle, hoover, reassemble.
Start everything up again, and the temperature is dropping nicely - 57C and the fan is down to 900RPM - much better.

So the moral of this story is: dunno. Chuck a tensioner under your desk from time to time, it helps your hardware last longer? Laugh | :laugh:

Out of interest, how's your PC for dust and general debris?
