    Blimey, its hot over here

    Using a packbox with no fans and the cpu is 70c and case is 50c when playing mp3s

    Epia M1000 with 512 and 40gb 2.5 hdd

    this is way too hot for my likings but wat is the max before damage accurs?

    would having 1 60mm fan each side, one blowing and one sucking make much difference?

    Thanks
    Jon
