Default Intel 3945 wifi heats up - 09-26-2009, 04:59 AM

I've added an intel 3645 wifi card to my mini 9 running Linux a few months ago, as the standard broadcom was giving me issues. Performance is great.

However, I notice excessive heat from the wireless card, as in very uncomfortable to the touch. Is there anything I can do to help resolve this? Other than the wifi, I've added a a 2gig ram stick, and the mini rocks, aside from the heat.
