Several of you may have already seen this video of mine, in which I had installed the unit in a space in my desk designed for a PC tower. It started to attract a serious amount of dust there, so I've moved it on top of it in the hope that performance endurance will improve somewhat. I'll keep you posted in case it happens to improve matters.
Did you move the T1 out of that cabinet? Desks like that are aesthetically nice but man... whoever started that trend had no idea what they were doing. My desk came with a PC area like yours and I immediately recognized it as a problem. Heat is an enemy of electronics and suffocating devices meant to use convection cooling will kill them.
Keep the T1 on your desktop if you already haven't put it there.
Mine has definitely gotten hot but it's not burning. I'm wondering if it might be a good idea to open it up and cut holes into the slot that runs the center circumference of the case. From what I can tell there's no ventilation built into the unit.
