well for one dont put it on the carpet.. its never good to do that.. i'd say put it in the vertical stand bcuz mines like that & it never gets hot

and Keep it in a open area

I've never left mine on its side on carpet, on glass (tv stand) yes, but not on carpet. I suggest setting up a floor fan right next to it, blowing away from it.

thanks i'll do that

if you want to put it on the carpet grab a piece of cardboard from like a cereal box and put it underneath it. carbet gives off static electricity and at one point can fry the system.

as for cooling, i would recommend pelican as a brand to go with if you want to go that route. i just looked and they dont offer a cooler right now, they just updated and have a controller sleve and some accessories (golf club). also, they have a console stand that you can probably get off amazon for 5 bucks.

reason i say use pelican is because of thier warranty and the no questions asked console replacement policy.

nerdblurb.com has confirmed that the wii 24 hour internet thing extremely heats up the console. turn that off you should be golden.

it does true, they built it to be a 24 hour system

Well, its the carpet doing it harm, its sucking in dust, and all the out vents are surrounded by carpet, Carpet is probably worse than running it in a sealed glass box, because of all the muck that will sit on the chips inside, and get in the laser etc.
