Chromecast temperature

Hello there,
I received my CCU and Controller yesterday, and im LOVING it.

However... is it normall for the CCU to become this HOT ?! 
When i placed my finger/hand on it after gaming for a few minutes in 4K, i noticed the CCU beeing exremely hot.

Dunno if this will damage anything in the long run, i guess not, but its kinda weird no?

The CCU does run hot, especially when decoding the higher bitrate streams generated by Stadia. It shouldn't be a problem as long as you keep it well-ventilated. If it starts generated odd visual artifacts, reboots, or locks up, take a look at the ventilation situation and see if you can make some changes to improve things. Most people have no issues, though.
