    Have you got any external ventilation or just a fan circulating the air in the box?
    That heat needs to be able to get out. Even fitting a couple of 1" PVC elbows on each end would be a big help.

    Fan is bringing air in, and two slots where cabling runs out I thought might do , but yes I think I need to add extra venting should I be running the fan to suck or blow- seriously please.

    Mine are set up to blow the hot air out. Not sure if others have set theirs up the same.
