Default Is it safe to have a computer in front of radiator?

I keep my computer on the floor of my room and the computer is on the side of the wall where my radiator is. The radiator is just a normal grey one, reaching up to about where the AGP vid card sticks out.

I put paper on top of the radiator in about a 1 foot radius around the computer so it wouldnt directly blow heat onto it.

Still, is this safe, or should I move my pc to a different location?

thanks
