They do run warm by design. To satisfy my OCD I got a dual USB fan which I plugged into the front USB slot on the Denon. The fans only run when the unit is on.


This is something I was considering doing. What USB fan did you get? Is it noisy? Does it help?

I was also looking at this Antec AV Cooler but it reads to me that you plug it into AC and that's it's on all the time - certainly seems like a waste of electricity. Does anyone have any experience with it?

Quiet for me, however... as I have a couple of DVRs on the shelf above, the DVRs are the loudest equipment in my setup. I use one fan pointed at the side of the AVR (crosswind) and the second fan pointed at the stacked DVRs.

The AVR is noticeably cooler as measured by holding my fan directly over the top of the AVR. The air flow also helps to prevent pooling of the warm air within the cabinet.
