I just realized what you said here. What you can touch at this point is 
*not* the CPU at all. It is essentially the carrier. The CPU is the 
little raised portion in the center of the "carrier". It is the only 
part that will normally get very hot. The outer edges of the whole 
assembly will normally see very little heat, relative to what the core sees.
