Default Fan for SE?

Has anyone added a small fan to their simple SE? I did add vents to the enclosure, but seems like a lot heat anyway. I was thinking a small computer type fan.

Hi Roy!
The case of my SSE gets fairly warm, but it's got enough vents in the top plate to keep the heat at a moderate level. A fan couldn't hurt, though.

I'm currently building Pete Millett's DCP-P, and with 8 tubes and 2 MOSFET's, I thought a fan would be a good idea. I used a tiny 12VDC fan mounted in the bottom plate of the chassis. It is powered by it's own 115/12vac xfmr and a diode bridge. The small fan is quiet, blowing around 6
CFM @ 3000 rpm. Should be more than adequate.
