I wonder whether the heat-sink (which mine doesn't have) might be acting counter to its purpose due to the cramped confines?

A lot of people have reported heat issues after upgrading to 2 GB. I suspect mine probably has gotten warmer after upgrading to 2 GB. Interestingly, my Mini 9 was the same way, but it didn't matter whether it was 1 GB or 2 GB.

temps after upgrade - 10-28-2009, 01:36 AM
ok so I had the original 1 gb for a few days and read about the heat issue with the upgrade. I installed the istatpro widget and recorded temps for a few days of use. Max temp was 104 deg F. After the 2 gb ram upgrade I have been doing the same tests and still the max temp is 104 deg F. Granted, istatpro is reporting the HD temp (I guess that is the only temp sensor in the 10v) but I don't notice a difference with mine. Might be a perception issue. You think it is hotter so it feels hotter. Install the widget and report your temps, I am interested to see what other people are getting.

I've got a newer 10v, upgraded the RAM and have noticed no difference in temperature, even when working the little thing quite hard. Sounds like YMMV - I wonder if it's anything to do with the brand of memory? Mine was Crucial.
