    Otterbox Defender heat issue?

    I was wondering if anyone else has the issue of their X not venting "properly" when using the Defender? I realize a case this big probably isn't the best at venting heat (sure is good at protection though). It just seems like my X runs hotter than usual when encased.
    This is my Droid, there are many like it, but this one is MINE!

    Run, run as fast as you can. You can't catch me I'M ON GINGERBREAD, MAN!

    I don't have the case, don't have any case actually, but just kinda makes sense that any device would get hotter when enclosed like so. I would just keep an eye on your temps if you are rooted and can do so, as long as your temps are bellow 140 degrees Fahrenheit, you should be good. I would turn the phone off at night though so it has time to cool off for good time.

    Yeah right now it is OC'd at SV, 1.2GHz. I'll take your advice and keep it at the stock settings when case is in use. Thanks!
