Re: Pi es Hat temperature
The most common problem with an RPi running hot is badly installed heattoggle quoted messageShow quoted text
sinks and/or a case that restricts air flow.
Adhesive thermal pads on heat sinks can act as insulators instead of
conducting the heat to the heat sink.
You should use thermal paste like Artic Silver and the heat
sinks should be of good quality like Vilros or Enokay.
Personally for a Raspberry Pi 4 I like the Geekworm Armor case or
Embedded heat sinks.
I have never used a fan with any of my Raspberry Pi and none of them run hot.
Verify heat problems by running: pi_throt.sh
which will give you an instantaneous temperature and display if your Pi has ever been
To verify the RPi temperature check out installing this graph repo which will
plot CPU activity, ambient temperature and RPi temperature
