While others have already talked about what to look out for in terms of 
systems and drives, I haven't seen anyone mention things like your UPS 
batteries.  Were they also heat-soaked? At one place I worked at, we 
lost a whole bank of batteries in the UPS room when it overheated.  I 
think that was somewhere around a $95,000 replacement and required 
rush-delivery of a lot of SLAs from all over the place.
