+1. Make small changes in the intakes. Wait for the temp to settle in and then adjust again if necessary. Sometimes mine will settle out then drop a few degrees and then go right back to the temp I wanted. Not sure why, but that's what it wants to do. Once it drops and comes back up it will usually hang right there for hours on end with only 3-5 degree variances. Can't ask for much better than that.
