I have had my UTV on its side for several weeks now and notices it operates much cooler now. I have it on its left side, on bottle caps. Seems to do real well, but I'm wondering if anyone has had any problems operating it on its side. Thanks for any info and for this great forum, I've lurked for awhile and found the best info for UTV here.

Hard drives can be run in any position without negative effect, as long as the position allows for proper cooling.

That wasn't always true, hard drives used to only be able to be placed in one position. In fact in the early days of computers it depended on how the drive was positioned when it was formated. - Just thought that would be of interest to you all.

Try the keep tuners cool Mod. and raise your box up about a 1/2 inch or so to circulate air from under the unit. All for under $20.00


I modified my UTV 1 week ago, and my tuners are still running cool and not hot.


Your UTV will always run warm, that is normal, you just don't want those tuners to run hot!
