    First, I'd like to thank everyone who were (and still are) involved in the development of these awesome tools. Keep it up!

    I was just wondering how serious the overheating threat is for the Wii when loading games through a USB storage device since the fan stops working.

    Does the fan stop working after a while? Because when I first start playing a game the fan seems to still be on.

    I've checked on mine and the fan is on as soon as you power it up. It's very quiet though.
