The physical design appears to be the same as 3550-12G and some of the 3750.

The extra height is taken up by the PS and 2 fans which are on their own 
shelf, as there is no room behind the mainboard, since the mainboard is 

This is 1 more fan then many of the 1U switches have.

Overheating hasnt been a problem. They all run from warm to hot to the 
touch, from the 3500/2950 and up. Your servers will complain well before 
the switch does.
