Is there even enough room to get a fan in there in a suitable position?

I would have thought the power jack socket would be the best/safest place to pick 12v up from.

I have mine screwed to the wall, been there almost a year now, no problems.

I think there was an issue with them running hot, but that was the older versions.

As long as they are well ventilated they should be fine.

In reply to a post by ste211270:

As stated by others, if vertically mounted, they don't, not even the early ones.

Don't add a fan to it - it's a waste of time, not to mention the electrical noise you might introduce to the line. Wall mount it and it will be solid, I have had all the versions, all have been wall mounted and never had any issues.

Or upside down to allow the heat to rise through the vents on the bottom.

seems a design fault to me to require wall mounting for ventilation.

my hg612 doesnt crash but it does feel hot to touch.

I may give it some more elevation so has more air flow beneath it.
