    C'mon. It will never go below ambient temperature unless you use a Peltier Effect cooler. This fan can only drop a few degree at most.

    i really wouldnt worry unless you keep it in a really small space w/ no room to vent. unless it's between the tv, the wall, and the shelf, i don't think u'd need it.

    Spoiler Alert!

    I never said to drop below ambient, I said it would cool faster as in after its reached highest normal operating temperature while playing.

    As the fan run continuously, would it just affect the equilibrium and accumulate less heat rather than cooling down faster?

    I have not heard of many instances of the Wii over heating. It is a very well made system. *knock on wood*

    Yeah, so was the 360.


    I have one. It keeps it cooler when it is in standby because it stays on. It also helps when it is on because it helps force air in rather than just making the stock fan do all the work. Cooler running temps = longer life.

    I had a discussion with a Nintendo rep. with this issue. She said that the warmest the Wii gets is when its in standby...updating. And that warmth is perfectly fine and normal.
