[Soekris] 6501 with OpenBSD as firewall

Been running 5.4 without any problems, on a 6501-50 box with + 2.5"
HDDs in softraid1, using it as a firewall/mail server/VPN/ssh
proxy/nfs (storage connected to the external USB).
So far it's doing well.
It IS going to be hot tho :/
Currently it's idle (i.e. load < 1%) and the Atom is running pretty hot:
/home/nikola $ sysctl | grep -i deg
It's still far away form the 90 deg maxTj (which I was unable to reach
even when recompiling the OS) so it's not throttling, but still hot
for an idle system.
