Does anybody have advice concerning heating from cards in the Apple IIe? Given that most of these cards are around 35 years old, does that make them more fragile?
I recently added an AE accelerator card and even new, it's manual advised adding a cooling fan such as the System Saver to cool down the case. I added a system saver, but of course it is also very old so I don't know if it is putting out as much air as it did new.
Even with the fan, the case seemed to get pretty warm inside after a while (all slots are full).
Now I am running it with the cover off and with one of those USB powered mini fans blowing across the open case. Does this seem the best approach? These cards are pretty hard to replace and I want to do what is best.
