I think I'd rather have a "warm" rig than one filled with dust. Check
out your PC sometime and see what that fan does for it (although it has
reason to need a fan). I doubt the Omni needs the cooling, and I don't
plan to do that to mine. Remember the tube rigs that lasted for years
with no internal fans?
