Overheating you view box

We are on our second box. The first stopped working and seemed very hot. This one has started cutting out after around an hours watching.

i put a thermometer on it today and on standby, it is running at 42.5 degrees Celsius, which seems a bit high. Ambient temp is 24 degrees. 

Any ideas what these boxes should reach?

Not sure about the temps, but have you got enough air flow around the box and havent got anything on top or underneath it?

My UHD box was constantly getting hot, even when in standby Smiley Frustrated

 

I bought a set of small rubber feet off of amazon and they raise the box slightly and help with the airflow. It still runs hot, although better than before.
