[John Christie]"My mirror front has been on for 48 hours or so and I thought I'd check the temperature. Can anyone from Pinnacle say exactly what the danger mark is?"
During earlier testing of the MD machines (before the fan solution existed) we ran tests in a warm room, which brought the machine up to 45-46 degrees, but then suddenly the machine would shut down all by itself. I wonder if that was the CineWave board protecting itself or the machine.
Anyway, for a MD machine, you really do want the fan. Not only is it awfully cool looking, it really helps out with ventilating these things. After installation typically the machines drop to 36-38 degrees even after many days of being on.
What I've read is that 40 degrees is normal, and if your machine sustains more than 40 degrees over a period of time, you should consider getting better ventilation in your editing suite...

Can someone explain how I get one of these fans?? (The cool-looking ones you described). Our VAR installed their own fan, and while they made a great effort and did it for free (nice of them), it's still running at 45 degrees celcius pretty much all the time, which I think is too hot.
