Has anyone noticed that the MicroHD tends to run a bit on the warm side? Is this normal?
It's a furnace!
Dam good thing they put the power supply outside or it would melt the plastic case.
No doubt it will shorten the componet life.
My Manhattan ran cool enough that it actually lowers the room temperature.

Could be overkill but it would be awesome to see someone put a liquid cooled ride on the Ali Chip. Lol!!
