Good thought, but unlikely here... whole machine room is on a UPS
(which seems happy and has no events). 

While these machines are mostly in one rack, that rack has 8 
PDUs on separate circuits.  (All of the SC1435s are running on 120V, 
single phase from a 208V/3 phase distribution system). Machines with 
issues are spread out across the PDUs (and multiple phases).

I'm more concerned/thinking that with 70-71 degree F intake air, 
the SC1435 can't deal with running "flat out" in an HPC environment.
