[Lab] Video Render! Urgent

Hi Alexander - is your system a desktop or laptop?
Assuming it's a desktop, have you opened it up and cleaned/vacuumed the
heatsinks/fans for the CPU and GPU's as well as all of the chassis and P/S
fans and air vents?  Usually if this is a slowing evolving issue, dust and
poor circulation through the chassis are the culprits.  If so, a good
internal vacuuming should help.  Cooling the room won't help much if the
internal chassis circulation (especially over the heat sinks) is bad.  Also
make sure your heatsink fans are actually working and the firmware has them
on.  ie. not in silent mode.  Chassis fans often have switches on them or
their cords that allow you to change the speed - ensure they are on full.
Additionally, you could modify your system power settings to use econo
modes which may slow the rendering but allow the system to operate at a
lower temperature.

Hope that helps!
