AMPs and A/V/R's require a good amount of ventilation, to keep them cool. ALWAYS err on the side of precaution. Add a small fan if necessary.

Best wishes,

Any idea on what type of fan? Is there a fan that could plug into the receiver its self?

If you can find an old cell-phone charger or ac adapter for some radio your aren't using that outputs 12 volts, you can buy an ordinary computer fan (typically 80mm or if you want it really quiet go for a 120mm size) and the plug will power it. You may have to add in a switch which can be found at any local hardware store since I don't think the 605's have power outlets in back. Then you can mount it wherever it would work the best. My old stereo receiver, which fortunately had an outlet, burned me once so I cut a hole in the side and put a fan on it like I described above. It never burned me again.
