    Matrox Mini running Hot?

    I bought and installed a Matrox MX02 Mini Max a few weeks ago.  It works great, but I noticed the box is very hot to the touch.   Is this normal?

    Mine ran very hot and after an hour of running I would get flashes on my external screen. I used a fan to cool it down so I could finish my project.

    I eventually got it exchanged and my new one is nowhere near as hot.

    George, sorry for my ignorance, but where do I find this utility?   The Matrox box did not come with an installation disc--I downloaded the driver from their site.  I'm not even sure where to access a Matrox help menu?

    Mine runs barely warm to the touch - probably about blood heat.

    I can grill a steak on mine! (Medium rare, with onions and mushrooms Smile)  It's only cookin' when running Symphony.   When Symphony is closed but my computer is on, it's warm as you describe.    Since it's a brand new unit, I think I'll call Matrox tech support and ask them if this is normal.

    Re: Matrox Mini running Hot?

    I've just checked mine after a morning's 1080p25 work.  As I said, maybe blood heat.  It sounds like you got a lemon, Terry.

    Mind you, I don't have MAX.
