We keep the temp on the thermostat between 70 and 71F. It's incredibly cold outside, so I'd say it's around 65-68 indoors in our main room. It's definitely not too warm. I've even put my hand in the area where it stays while it's running. The air feels completely cool. We've tried putting the console both vertically on the stand and horizontally. It doesn't help. I've actually got a few pics of the artifacts too.

First pic is of Twilight Princess. Second is from Metroid Prime Corruption. Both games are running @ 480p. Artifacts are still present when running @ 480i, but it's not nearly as apparent because the signal is much weaker.

EDIT: The TV is a 30" Panasonic HDTV (CRT). However, we've also tested this wii on a 40" Sony LCD. The artifacts are present on both TV's.
