|I noticed that air duct is not aligned with processor properly. Actually its misaligned by a full air duct diameter length to the right of the processor. Is this normal? Does air duct serve its purpose at all? Should I keep it that way or should I remove the air duct?|
However, there are no problems with temperatures (at least I think so): at idle cpu temp hover around 35 °C, at load up to 55 °C (note: I've never tested it at full load for a longer periods since I have no intention to use this machine more than for watching movies and basic office tasks).
To show you what the situation looks like, I took a pic:

You can clearly see that cpu and air duct are verticaly misaligned.
