Default Mini 10 cooling system. - 06-25-2010, 10:02 PM

Does the mini 10 have a fan in it? Mine gets very hot. When its plugged in it gets extremely hot. Hot to the point that it can't be held comfortably. So I was wondering if I had to add a fan, upgrade 2 a better fan, or get one of those cooling dock 2 sit it on. How hot does it get U ask? Not hot enough 2 melt it or burn anything, but hot enough that if U'r holding it in U'r hand, U'll say "Damn this thing is hot".

I don't think any of the Mini 10 netbooks (1010, 10v/1011, 1012) have a fan.

I can confirm this

I found that the Mini 9 can get pretty damn hot to hold (I think its the SSD/design), the Mini 10 and 10v aren't too bad but do get a bit hot. The new Mini 1012 is absolutely fine though


Please do not send me support requests via PM.

I got a Belkin on clearance from Office Depot for $15, it's for 15" laptops but it has one big fan and I sit it back a bit and acts as a wrist wrest too.
This is under my 10v, and even after using it for awhile, it's no warmer than if it had been off. Well almost lol.

the one I posted above (Targus) is only $20 (BestBuy) and its netbook sized (10 inch) and dual fans, I also have a large one (also Targus) for my 17 inch HP, but the Mini one is so much the right size its scary.....fits right in the case too (also Targus)....lol

I find my 1012 only gets hot while plugged in and the battery is charging. Once the battery has reached full charge, or is discharging, it is barely warm to the touch.

Default Thank U 2 all who replied - 06-26-2010, 05:25 PM

Thanx 2 everyone that comment on my Mini 10 getting 2 hot. So I know now that it doesn't have a fan. I don't think with the slim design that it would B possible to add one so I will go and get the cooler docking station. I just want 2 know if the heat could B a problem. Will it overheat or is it design 2 run @ that temperature? Again thanx 4 U'r help.

The Atom CPU should shutdown before it overheats and damages itself. I think that'll happen when the CPU temp is around 100 degrees C.

As for the rest of the system, how much faith you have in Dell (Compal?) engineering?
