Keep em cool for 13$
Coolerguys Dual 80mm USB Cooling Fans https://www.amazon.com/dp/B002NVC1DS/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_dGIaFbJYWBX44
That is a good price, but I would prefer to pay $20 for this:
My reason is the AC Infinity has a 3-speed switch, and I find leaving it on at low speed keeps anything I've got cool without audible noise from my LP.
As a general rule, a larger fan operating at a lower speed can move the same air with less noise, so the 120mm fan is typically a better size for most applications..
That said, what I don't know is if the Coolerguys fan might have some special blade profile or motor to keep noise down.

I've got the smaller A/C Infinity dual fan set ups. They actually can be heard on low if the noise floor is low enough. The 120 mm option does make sense for less fan noise.

I like those too and they do go on sale sometimes. $13 is good enough for those on a covid budget. A couple of comments say they are quiet.

My AVR doesn’t get too hot but why not? I ordered a pair of the 3 speed fans you linked. Hopefully at the low speed they don’t make much noise.

Thanks Kew!!! :)

Happy to help!
I think you'll be pleased with them, but please report back how you would describe the sound level and if it suits you! For me, they are a plug it in and forget about it proposition.

So far so good. At the lowest setting and they are super quiet. We get very few hot days in Seattle but good to know I have these for those few days a year. :)

And on hot days, if you have air conditioning running , you won't hear them for sure. :)

That being said, I am kind of sad Sure got out of the turntable cartridge business as they produced one of the most popular and well reviewed series ever...
