I have been using my 2011 Mac Mini to edit videos with Imovie 10.1.12 -
It does good with basic editing, but when I edit a video using a green screen
method, it gets the fan spinning real fast and loud. I have applied new heat
sink paste and put an SSD into it when I bought it. it had Intel graphics HD3000
w/ 512MB of vramm I guess. An intel core I5 - 2.3 ghz
My question is, if I remove the bottom access panel, will that help to let more air
for cooling ? I built a stand to allow it to stand on it’s side (pictured) below.
I am trying not to melt the Mini. I am going to add another 8gigs of ramm later.
I can’t afford a newer Mac right now and don’t want to fry this one.
