The other day a friend of mine and I did a full cap kit on my MS8-29FSG in my astro. We found that after turning the monitor back on, the flyback became quite hot and gave off a lot of heat in a short amount of time.

We actually removed the metal casing on the chassis which enclosed the flyback, just to give the flyback a little more air. However, this doesn't really solve the issue of air flow within the cab and keeping the flyback cool.

I've been thinking of leaving the lower back panel of my astro cabinets off and purchasing a clip-on fan to flow air to the back of the chassis. Has anyone else experienced an issue of their flyback (on any monitor chassis) getting hot? Is this even normal?
