I've been told that PC-styled systems actually run cooler with the cover
on, as the fans pull more of the air over the cpu and other electronics
then, where having the cover off pulls most of the air from the side and
almost directly to the power supply, while most of the rest of the
components sit in idle (and warming) air.
