RE: How hot is too hot?

110 should definitely not be too hot to keep your hand on. You might want to check your measurements.

Caps are rated at typically 85 degrees to 105 degrees Celsius, which would be +185 degrees Fahrenheit, though it is at a 1000 hour life typically. Keep the caps under 150 degrees.

Drill some vent holes.
