I've put together my first new build and feel pretty good about it.
I've got an Asus P5Q-E, C2D 4600, Ultra M998, XP Pro w/SP3.
I've noticed that, by touch, the hot spot is the Asus EPU, which is a power saving engine.
Any ideas of how to direct some cool air to it?
Thanks.

Indeed. Keep in mind that computer components can easily get to 50C (122F) or higher under normal operations which will feel hot to your hand, but not necessarily indicate a problem. Computer components and hands have different heat tolerances. :)
