Not sure it has been mentioned but another benefit of the Incra Cleansweep is the sound reduction.  I have even thought about adding a couple pads of insulation on the inside of the box to even further reduce the sound but haven't got around to experimenting.  VERY noticeable sound reduction as is though.  I love mine and I will concur that the router never gets hot as the air moving past it is significant.  No issues whatsoever.

I chatted with Incra about the CleanSweep, they said they’ve did several years of testing and redesigns and multiple router brands to make sure the CleanSweep would operate without causing any over heating as long as people are using 4 Inch dust collection system to maximize the air flow.

I have been running the Clean Sweep system, with the Wonder fence, on my Incra table for years and my PC 7518 shows zero sings of any problems. The box is always clean and the only time I have to worry about dust is when I am free handing something, without the fence.
