    Hi

    I have 3 of these stacked on top of each other. Is this okay to do? Will they overheat?

    The airvents are on the sides so I personally think they'll be okay but just wanted to check first.

    For info; one is used constantly (has music and movies on) and the other 2 are back ups so one is used every hr (Time machine) and the other one is accessed once per day for back up.

    Cheers in advance.

    Should be fine, but check them for overheating during the first few periods of heavy activity.
