It's basically a smart phone without a screen or radio.
Not many phones have vents.
Thanks Technician;what do you think if i drill some holes on the bottom of the box but after warranty expires just for precaution,i always use small 5 v fans connected to the USB port under most of my hardware?

Adding holes adds dust access points. Better to keep it closed and clean, if your house is extremely hot inside (90°-110°), add a fan blowing across it if you like.

Yes, that's one thing to consider, the ambient temp. It has to be acceptable for it to cool.

If the manufacturer has sealed the device then heating probably isn't a problem. Most likely increases the lifespan as previously mentioned as dust cannot compromise the cooling!

Just try not to stick it in direct sunlight or in a stupidly hot area.
