How can I cool down an overheating home theater Mac Mini?

Episode 973 (2:23:50)

Penny from Sacramento, California

Penny just put her home theater Mac Mini into a cabinet to childproof it and now it's overheating. Leo says that needs better airflow. Raising it off the cabinet shelf is a good idea, or take it out and put it higher up so it can stay cooler.

The chatroom says that a Standout AV cabinet has built in fans that would keep it really cool and the fans are quiet. A fan that has a nice large blade will move a lot of air and keep the temperature in the cabinet cooler. A fan blowing both in and out is the best option.
