Heat is something that I try to be super aware of when it comes to computers. So in my efforts to have everything under control, I decided to put four rubber feet on the four corners of my Mac Mini and even have a little external fan facing the ports at the back. Now that the Mini is elevated by 0.79 inches and with the fan, I'm happy to report that my Mini runs at an average of 45 degrees Celsius with Mail and Safari open. Before this, the temperature was around 55 - 60 degrees running these same applications. I saw some links of the NuTech Mac Mini stand but didn't really like it since the Mini is held up on its side (vertical position). I read somewhere that heat dissipates much quicker when the object is horizontal as opposed to vertical. I greatly recommend elevating your Mini if you have one, especially the quad core Minis that tend to run a little warmer.
