    Ive been using my Manley Vari Mu for hrs on end,and am quickly realizing how much heat the unit generates.
    I left a couple of rack spaces empty above the Manley n my rack and was wondering if it would be safe to place exhaust fans atop the Manley?-------any ideas?

    cooler is better, IMO, for long-term reliability. My guess is the manual addresses the cooling/venting issue.

    If no fan, then it's convection all the way- in which case, you need air movement around the unit.

    A full rack space above and below has been fine for the two I own now for over 5+ years. They are meant/designed to run hot.
