    Hmmm, hard to know. if it is keeping cool then it's probably ok. mine was getting hot and very noisy and cleaning fan, heat sink etc and changing the paste makes a massive difference but it is because I have cooling issues that I need to do it.

    But hot air is normal. Ask yourself if it is worse than it used to be? Clearing the fan may be all you need. If you do take it to bits try and find a guide online.
