First, yes - I DID search for this issue, but none of the threads I found seemed to address the issue.
My problem is that the Mini runs at 180 degrees F (82C) while watching video or gaming. Gaming is obviously going to heat it up, but video? Really?
I've seen some issues with bad heat syncs or paste, but I loathe the idea of ripping this thing apart without first asking the community.
I'm tracking the temp with iStat Menus and using Snow Leopard 10.6.2 and used the latest RC release, as of this posting, of NBI.
Is this common? Most of the threads I see only have issues of about 60C (140F) at the most. I can idle and this machine is around 125F (52C).
I appreciate any input i can get...especially the kind that DOESN'T involve disassembling my Mini.
