It's certainly a possibility. I don't think it's running too hot though.
Once while wondering how to increase ventilation I realised that leaving
the sides of might help! And the harddrives have a slot empty spacing
between them. According to xmbmom the mobo and cpu never go above 28C.
Of course, having no case to protect it does leave it exposed, but it
*looks* pretty clean.
