If you search around you'll find some threads where this stuff is discussed ad nauseum.

Personally, I dealt with heat issues by opening mine up and removing the stupid manufacturing labels from every heat radiating chip or surface within my Mini 9.
You'd be surprised how a little insulation here and there adds up.

I also make sure I don't put my Mini 9 down on any soft surfaces that will block the vents.
Passive cooling requires vigilance, but vigilance doesn't use battery power .

So you see everyone has their own way of dealing with the fact that this is a warm running machine.
