Default Top of 600T case is RED HOT!

I ran Assassins Creed III for two hours and when I came out and checked my temps the CPU was at 42C and the motherboard 45C, however the top mesh cover of the 600T case was red hot, literally almost too hot to touch without burning my skin! I think because it's all metal. Inside the case it was pretty warm too and the pipes on the H100i were also quite warm.

I have a Megaflow intake at the front on 700 rpm, an SP120 performance on the rear exahust at 900 rpm and a 120mm stock quiet fan also on the front drawing air in.

The two SP120's on the H100i are locked at 1130 rpm approx and are outside the case under that red hot mesh cover sucking air up and out (I can't change their speed - see my other posts).

Is this normal for the top of the case to get so hot?

After exiting the game it quickly cools down and actually becomes cold to touch. CPU returns to idle temp of 25C and the motherboard 36C. The GTX 690 probably isn't helping with internal heat.

Anyway, some temperature advice please, slightly concerned at the hotness of the case.
