my RB5009UG+S+IN is mounted in a 19" rack and directly one position above a network switch is located which currently gets a little bit warm, because of the RB5009. As the switch has a operating temperature range of up to 40°C and the heatsink of the RB5009 is at around 40-45°C I tend to either interchange the positions of the RB5009 and my switch in the rack (putting the switch below and the RB5009 on top) or adding a small fan.
However, for the RB5009 I only have exactly 1 HE space at the moment, so adding a fan is a bit a challenge. For the future I am planning to have a L009UiGS-RM beside the rB5009 (beside each other and not on top of each other). Just as a side note.
Does anyone have a good solution for some additional cooling airflow? I'm thinking about simply putting a small fan on the front, back or on the side of the RB5009. My RB5009 is currently placed at the bottom position of its 1 HE slot, so there is around 0.5 HE available on the front for some airflow.
Otherwise (if noone here has a cool idea ) I have to change the positions of my switch and the RB5009.
Thanks a lot in advance,
