That is the best way to keep an AVR that is known to "overheat" Cool?

Liquid cooling? taking the top lid off and aiming a Desk fan into the unit? Buying a small cooling fan that is inexpensive and draws its power from an AC adaptor? (is there a such thing?)

I just purchased a silent PC fan along with AC/DC with Molex to power it. I've had it on my Marantz 8001 and Denon 3808. The unit NEVER gets hot.

Actually, being a bit of a cooling freak, I have a laptop cooler on top of my SA8300HD DVR. That works well too.

I got the fan and the power supply from http://buyextras.com/cacoso.html

Thanks,
Hansang

The best way to keep any AVR cool is to give plenty of space to breath.

Your system can shine no matter what it's made of.......except if it's Bose.

Some cooling systems look cool especially the liquid nitrogen ones that give off the fog.

Any thoughts on what is a good temperature to keep the AV compartment running at or near.. ie: no higher than 114 f?
(if you sit a thermometer near by)
