Hey guys, those who have their Sheevaplug already running for days, how's the temperature of the box? Though most of us here maybe running the device at less than 75% CPU usage, my concern is whether it needs ACU or room temperature would just be fine.
Im still waiting for my unit to arrive. Purchase to delivery takes 3 weeks.
I just held a digital thermometer to the outside of the case, and it ended up in excess of 102 degress fahrenheit before I got bored.
That's probably where the heatsink is sitting, though. And, it's OK for the outside of a device to get warm; if it didn't, heat wouldn't be leaving!
Oh, and; I'm not running any AC yet. Ambient temps are in the high 70s.
Hope that info helps!
