How hot are your`s NB (nForce2 SPP-128) chipset heatsink?

Me and several other guys seems to be able to cook some popcorn on ours heatsinks,so is this normal or have we recieved some bad mobo`s.....be careful so you don`t burn your fingers when feeling it.

Sounds like a god ideĆ*.....BUT if i had bad contact with the chipset it should not be this hot (heatsink),maybe it will be even hotter if i put some AS to it (better contact).....cant put my finger on it for more than 2-3 sec or i`ll get burned,this might be the root to all evil i had with this mobo :devil:
