Considering I'm using a CPU miner on a Macbook I haven't generated much at all.

So nope, no fires!

Improper cooling WILL increase your mining costs!  Grin
Air cooling is fine as long as you have some AC running close to the rig...
Uh, AC WILL increase your mining costs!

I was thinking about this last night and came to the conclusion that it would be very difficult for a major fire.
Most likly thing to happen would be the PSU/GFX/CPU goes pop then the computer turns off.

If it does turn into a fire then its sealed inside the metal case and there isnt exactly that much fuel inside there for the fire to consume so it would burn out quickly.

I was thinking about this again too.  I had a computer where the flames exited the case.  Sure it was a spectacular bang, but if there had been anything flammable above the computer at the time it would have gone up in flames too.  Smiley
