I don't run digital.  But, buy the heatsink fan from TenTec.

During this past weekends WRTC in Russia, (R31A), the coolest thing in the
sauna tent was the Orion with the heatsink fan.  We  ran 24 hours solid, and
the duty cycle between the two rigs was very close  to 50% each, with one
of the stations virtually always transmitting during any given second (that
was the plan, anyway!)

Still a big fan of my Orion.  It was worth all the hassle taking it over.  The
only  failures during the contest were by the operators.
