    yea i went and bought the fan from Gamestop very pleased that the usb ports have power during standby so no longer overheating in standby mode yay and only cost me $10. i am however very surprised at how well the tiny little fan works and how noisy it is but $10 and noise to protect $250 is well worth it to me!

    why a cooling fan? i'm reading from other posters that they've been running their wii 24/7 (w/o a fan i'm assuming) and they've had no issues. please tell me you bought it because of the cool led light or the fan noise helps you go to sleep at night!

    Yeah, I bought the cooling fan a little over a week ago and although it works very well, the noise is getting on my nerves. That little thing is much louder than I thought it would be.

    $15 at EB Games. Well spent??? The jury is still out on this one.

    I've had mine on since day one. Its been horizontal that entire time. Yes, it gets hot, but its nothing to worry about. I also leave my discs in the wii. The longest a disc has been in my wii has been 1 month (off and on playing zelda). No signs of melting or wear and tear. They made a good product here.

    Yes, it is rather warm. I'm guessing it about 120-130F on the outside case. This will make the internal some 150+. It will more likely to shorten the life of your Wii, premature components failure ......

    It's definitly a design fault. My guess is that Nintendo will have to enable the fan in standby mode (if wii connect24 is also ON) in the next firmware upgrade.

    Before then, my advice is, if your wii connect24 is ON in standby mode, place your console in the vertical position for the peace of mind.

    WiiConnect 24 isn't always connected you know. With the Nintendo WiFi USB connector, it keeps popping up every three minutes saying a user is connected. I watched the status, and it shows me that the Wii connects and deconnects each time. It's so damned annoying that it keeps popping up!
