    I have expirenced my Wii over heating multiple times and freezing on me. I have since then taken the Wii out of the cradle and it gets better circulation and no over heating. You might want to try it if you are expirenceing freezing all the time. it gives way better circulation than in the stand.

    P.S. Im drunk so no over complicated questions or I will spam you.... only kidding but seriously I'm pretty wasted.....

    HAHA No 6th bored of 6th actually just drinking while Wii-ing but it froze on me and I decided to take action and Nintendo support line was closed, figures it's the first time I called them and then I realized that there was just a small opening at the bottom of the cradle for the intake fan and I was like Hey! That's bullshit so I say screw the cradle and go old skool whatever that means but yeah it rocks!

    I leave my standing up without the cradle. It seems to do just fine. Make sure theres nothing behind it to block the fan.

    Yes but there is an intake fan at the bottom of the Wii. If it is standing the rubber stoppers seem to give it some breathing room. but for optimum airflow it's good to justlay it on it's side. Intake and output fan free and clear

    You might want to try it on it's side anyways cause even though you might think it's a heating issue it is a possible function of Wii saying it's not getting enough airflow

    The Wii runs much cooler using a wired instead of wireless connection. My console went from being very warm all the time on all sides to slightly warm on one side and almost cool on the other.

    Not sure about the wireless connection but if you have tested it and not feedin us bullshit then It's an OKGO for me.

    *update*
    Watching youtube videos for about 1 hour so far no heat.

    I'm forced to lie mine flat due to space restrictions, but thanks for the info anyway.

    Oh you would like to think so... but I love Austin cause there is actually a Dave and Busters around the corner and no one can pass up video games and alcohol.:thumbsup:

    Oh and just to clearify, on the side I mean where you can feed the disc in horizontally if you haven't gotten it by now with the bottom intake fan and the back fan exposed.

    *UPDATE*
    Been 2 days so far no freezing at all no decrease in performance.

    The stand raises it too so the airway at the bottom is still unblocked. My wii is never warm ( :lol: ) and mine has always been vertical in the stand.

    Well good for you and what I have noticed and everyone I have show agrees with me that none of the airways should be blocked. With anything.
