Making sure that CPU cooling is generally working

Left everything switched on for an hour last night and monitored the CPU temperature.

Granted... the CPU was doing nothing, but the temperature started at 36C and then rose slowly to 40C where it stayed for the next 45 minutes.

The operating temperature of this CPU is up to 75C - so its looking good.

Did I mention that its very quiet? A slight hissing sound from the five fans inside the box is audible if you listen carefully... by the time its in its shelf, it will be inaudible.

I need to start researching a DVB-T tuner card - if I can find a Linux compatible card at a reasonable price, that will be the one for me.
