That should answer your question Karthik, it was a few posts above. Maybe you missed it.
Guys, really, please read before you write, thanks.

Question

Re - starting thread!

i didn't exactly get what you asked by where the gain is set at, but i hope this answers your question, half way through full.

and yes i still haven't changed the gaps between the speakers and tube, seriously will this cause any problems!

I'd read in an amp manual (a pretty powerful mono amp) that when pushed hard, it could get as hot as 90 degrees, and that one should exercise caution while touching an amp that has been working hard for some time.

The exact heat limits would be different from amp to amp, but if used for a while, most amps get pretty hot -- hot enough to not be able to put your palm on them for more than a few secs. Most amps will have thermal shutdown setups, so they will turn themselves off if things get hot enough to cause damage.

If the amp is getting you hot and bothered I am sure there is a DIY circuit out there that will trigger a fan off a Thermistor; I have used this for my Home amps (2 fans trigger at 55deg C and 2 more at 70 deg C and I have manual overide if I ever want to use the amps baised to Class A).

Google (or LBM) can help find such circuits.
