Time Capsule's manual says:
+About Operating and Storage Temperatures+
+When you are using your Time Capsule, it is normal for the case to get warm. The+
+Time Capsule case functions as a cooling surface that transfers heat from inside the+
+unit to the cooler air outside.+
Now I don't know if yours gets hotter than 'normal'. I know mine gets fairly warm, but not to the point where I think there's a problem.
Is there anyway to monitor the temp/fan speed like with smcFanControl?
If you can put your hands on the surface for 5 second, then it's not too hot. All these appliances are using the chassises for passive cooling. It save manufacturing costs for them.
For example the Seagate Barracuda ES Drive (I think this is what's inside the TC), specifies an operation temperature between 5C to 55C.
