Use smcFanControl to regulate the internal fan to make sure that it is drawing enough air through the mini to keep things cooled down.'09 Mac mini, iPad 2, iPhone 4S, Mac OS X (10.7.3), iOS (5.0.1) Mac fanboi since 1984!

If it is in an enclosed space, I would create a windtunnel for cooling:
- Buy 3 or 4 of the $10 fans that would go into a power PC and an inexpensive 250 W power supply.
- Superglue the 4 fans into a "hurricane wall" that pulls fresh cool air through the wind tunnel to help keep the Mac power adapter and mac mini cool
Has a "geek" factor, too.

thanks guys - all good ideas. To start with maybe I'll just see how it goes. I'm hoping I'll get enough air movement to keep it cool as is. The other option might be to put a usb powered laptop cooling pad in there. What do you think?
