    Hi Guy's
    I placed my z1 approx 20 cm from the rear wall, on a stand so that there is free flow of air upwards. The manual only stated that do not place objects near front intakes. I have had it running for approx 30 hrs with no speed up of the fans. My question is, am I taking a chance on internal heat build up that could damage it or would the fans increase in speed before any damage occured?
    thanks
    mark

    If you've had no fan speed up then I wouldn't worry.

    I have my Z1 in a case suspended from the ceiling - the rear is open but the sides of the case only allow 5cm gap either side of the PJ: been running for 150 hours now, and not a single occurence of fan speed up in that time.
