Can I use my macbook air in clamshell mode with this case without overheating?

I would love to have my macbook sit on my desk incognito with this case, but I was wondering if anyone has kept their laptop running in clamshell mode with this case closed all the time with an external monitor?

I play online games occasionally and watch youtube videos and I was curious if this would cause any problems if I kept the case closed with my macbook air.

    Based on the answer above by the person playing a game and the Air overheating with the case *open*, it's logical that it will get hotter closed and performing the same action.

    Sadly you and I cannot have this beautiful case. :-( After my Air overheated with the Speck see-through plastic case which is also beautiful, I think I'll get the Incase perforated.
