I have an SN42G2 (or something like that), just thought I'd let you know
that heat and noise are a problem on this (esp since I added a second hard
disk). It has to run with the case off, this does nothing to help with the
noise :)

I would expect the SN95G5 to have similar issues, particuallarly after
