    Has anyone bought the fan accessory or stand with fan type things out there? Are they worth it, do you notice an improvement?

    Yeah the Wii doesn't overheat like some other systems do -cough- xbox360 -cough- :smilewinkgrin: . Just as long you don't block the fans and vents, you'll be fine.

    Yeah as long as you keep the vents well ventilated it shouldn't over heat. I had mine on for over 5 hours straight and it was hardly hot.

    They are very cool. Their shape allows natural air to flow through, like the gamecube. That makes it quiet and cool.

    I wouldn't get one because I bough a air thing and all it is is loud and annoying it didn't help me at all so now I never use it. I guess if you leave your Wii on for like three days non stop there is a chance you might need one but other than that they are a waste of money.

    Yeah, the fan would just be a waste of money. Save your money and your ears from the noise it will make.
