This metal computer is ice cold when you touch it so I rectified it with some cherry paper-backed veneer which I attached with contact cement. Problem solved and it looks better too!

Neat job. I jhope you did not cover the fan vents—or it will shorten the life of it.

Never heard of an over-chilled computer and physics says the veneer will be equally as cold as the metal but perhaps you will perceive this to be warmer and if you like the look then its a win.
