Never replaced one
I have had my 8300HD in a wooden entertainment centre for the last 3 years.
I was honestly not even careful about ventilation.
The are very few ventilation holes, only for cables in the rear.
It is sitting on-top of a Bell 6100 and a DVD recorder.
I also have it connected to a 500GB external hard drive.
No problems at all.
