USB Wireless NIC causes 10c rise in CPU idle temp

    With my USB Wireless NIC plugged in my CPU idle temp is 41c. Unplug it
    and within 10 minutes it is down to 31c. Plug it back in and it is right
    up to 41c within 10 minutes. My CPU usage in task manager stays at 0%
    with an occasional 2% for a split second. Would the heat be then coming
    from the chipset? (fanless heatsink) Do these wireless USB NIC's use
    that much power?

    Prime95 is error free for 8hrs @ 51c max with it plugged in, haven't
    tested it yet unplugged. Anyone else notice this temp rise with wireless
    USB devices?
