aca 630/25 accelerator heat issue

I have just put together a A600, with 4gb CF ide drive, an aca 630/25 accelerator and a604 trapdoor memory expansion.

After about an hour of gaming the heatsink of the aca 630/25 gets pretty hot. I havent measured the temperature, but would guess, from a finger test that it was about 60 degrees C. The aca is mounted correctly. I also suppose that because the aca is directly below the keyboard metal casing that this casing might dissipate some of the heat. I added a 12V 40mm low profile 12V fan which I powered off the floppy drive connector. This reduced the heat. But this fan is noisy. Am I paranoid regarding the heat and is 60 degrees OK?

Thanks.
