Hi all. Long-time lurker, first time poster! First off, I just want to say thanks to Chris and all of you folks for all the fantastic work you do daily on this site. It's been a tremendous help to me as I've started to dip my toes back into the world of computer audio. I'm a confirmed vinyl junkie and audiophile in real life, but I'm looking forward to playing around with a digital front-end again. In fact, I've followed the plans for Topanga, with some minor modifications, and am now up and running with my first headless music server! (Note: I'll plan to post some more about the process of building this thing and my experience with it once I've had a chance to play around a bit more.) For the moment, I have one question... I've got my server up and running and have placed it right on top of my Benchmark Dac-1. It actually looks really nice, with the Topanga case matching the color and width (less depth!) of the Benchmark. But for those who know the Benchmark, you also know how hot it runs... I've checked the CPU temp of the Atom processor over the first day or two of having it running, and it's never gotten higher than 47C. Some data scoured from the interwebs suggests that an operating temperature up to 50C is normal. What do you guys think about running at 47C? How hot does your CPU run on the DN2800MT board? I'll find an alternate way to set up the server and dac if need be, but it looks so cool like this! Thanks in advance for your help!
