Re: 2445b shelf vents for bottom air intakes - should I?

Depending on the devices placed below the shelf holding the 2445, it even might be worse to have holes.

The holes in the bottom of the scope are there to let in air at ambient temperature, so if there is another warm device below it, the 2445 might suck in warmer air than expected, so the holes in the shelf could have an adverse effect.

That's why in telecom technology rack mount devices must be designed to have front to back cooling only, and not bottom upward cooling, to avoid one big chimney.

Just my 2 cents,
