i just looked, and my set has the full fan fix... so there are 3 fans on the 65" ZT ... the middle one is practically silent. its the other two that are loud -- when looking at the front of the display, i think that the one on the right gives off the most noise. also, the area under that fan gets EXTREMELY hot... like i can't even touch the area for more than a few seconds.
i tried the plunger fix on both left/right fans, and it did help, but the noise still bothered me, so i tried using an outdoor foam knob/spigot cover that i saw someone mention they were going to try. well this makes it almost perfect! got a few of these from lowes and used magnetic tape (which i will have to crazy glue on later as the heat makes them peel off), drilled a hole at the end of them. using 3 of these eliminated almost all the sound.
i'm just really concerned about limiting the amount of heat that is escaping. the back panel seems just as hot in that specific area, though, as i tested it before/after just with my hand and it was burning hot before as well.
does anyone know if the TV will automatically shut down if it overheats? what kind of thermometer can i use to test the temperature of certain areas of the panel before/after putting my foam pieces on?
