Well, to everyone else it's rather logical that if you cover up the ports and vents, you don't allow the Wii to cool itself, resulting in it overheating and hardware damage. If you cover the Wii but leave the vents and ports uncovered, then your cover isn't doing a bit of good keeping smoke out from the inside of the Wii. If you have a cover with air filters, it'd have to be extremely fine and good filters to filter out the microscopic particulate matter in smoke which causes the problems. We're not talking simple dust here.Originally Posted by Skitz0
If you look at the System Stacker, it's useless as a dust cover. It's just meant to make it easier to organize your stuff.
You can't have it both ways. I've seen people suffocate and kill their computers too trying to follow the same logic as you: cover it to keep the dust out. A dead Wii is worse than a dirty Wii.
