[Beowulf] looking for a reference on failure rates

Hi folks:

   I am looking for a reference which describes failure rates of modern 
computer components as a function of temperature.  The usual rule of 
thumb is that every 10 degrees above a certain value doubles the failure 
rate (or decreases lifetime).  I would like to look at this analysis and 
refer to it for something I am working on.
