ghun 'Iw HIq, rap boqrat chej 
the bokrat liver is as warm as the bloodwine (HQ 13.1)

N.B. There does not seem to be an equivalent quality for "be cool".

KGT 94f.:  {'Iw HIq} (bloodwine) is served warm to hot (best is {porgh Hat}--"body temperature", though it is not clear whose body)

tuj 		be hot (v)
Hat		temperature (n)
tuj  		heat (n)

Do not confuse {ghun} "be warm" with {ghun} "program (a computer)".
