Does Time Capsule gets hot quickly?

I've heard that Time Capsule gets hot during Winter, up to 40 degrees Celsius. Then what if Summer comes? Will it overheat?

    No. I have had a Time Capsule - 2TB for three years, and it has never overheated. I have even kept in a confined space with no air flow. I also stacked other equipment on top of it and beneath it such as a DSL or cable modem, and it still didn't come close to over heating. You will be just fine!

  • I have 2 time capsules but i have never had an overheating problem. my suggestion to you is try to keep it out of an enclosed spaces and try to keep it low where the air is cool. But to get back to the point i am to make is that the time capsule uses air convection and it can get warm but the likely hood of it overheating it self out is low because of its internal fan. but if this is not enough info for you. you can void your warranty if your sill have it and mod the fan.
