I'm figuring that the smell is coming from the HD controller board, getting
sucked through the P/S's tiny 1" fan, and blown out the top of the computer.
The HD controller is plugged in right next to the P/S. I think one of the
chips on the HD controller blew, because it was one of the common ailments
of the 1400.
