Well 30 seconds is way too soon to touch it...Even after 5 minutes it's not that surprising that there is still lots heat on it; since the power was off the fans aren't ventilating it very well so it takes longer to cool. I don't think it's too hot as long as it's functioning properly. You just aren't meant to touch the part that soon after turning it off. I'm still confused about WHAT you touched, though.

Yeah, if you've been running this thing 24/7 and haven't had any problems; then it's high temperature probably isn't a problem.
