So I picked up a M5210 for my home storage needs and I have mounted a small 40x20 Noctua fan for some active cooling as I am running this in a normal desktop chassis. How hot do your controllers run?

MSM is showing I am running at 42c, which from what I am reading on IBM/Lenovo literature is slightly outside of the spec of 5c - 40c:

I am curious what others see their cards run at so I know how much priority I need to put at solving this problem.

I have the same card with a 40x10mm generic fan, at times the temp goes up to 55°C, but no issues at all
