    the box isant the prob (its the parts inside them) The parts get hot and make no contact with the box so heat cant be transferred (like a CPU does when a heatsink is attached to it)

    This is the only way air can enter or escape the box

    But remove the top and air can circulate quite a bit better

    But care needs to be given not to short out any of the contacts..

    I see. Well, I think I will leave the boxes on as I have the shakes due to caffine and sugar :)

    And they have holes in the boxes so meh :)

    Thanks for the info though.
