Haha, very typical - Same thing just happened to me, the first HN Rumor post I saw regarding it was one week after I received mine from the post.

But all is not lost, the RPi2 is quite performant and I'd still wait on early adopters to report on potential overheating when under a heavy workload. RPi3 Might be approaching the higher-end ODROID (XU3/4) in cooling fan necessity.

I have mine in a Flirc metal case and it is fine. I do not put it under heavy workloads, but the Flirc comes with a thermal pad and attempts to make some of the heat get piped to the case body.
