Without fan : start at 41°c, average 75°c, some spike do 79°
with case+fan (5V) : start 33°c, average 35°c, max 43°c (metric took every 15Sec)
temp.pngRPI 4b4G v1.1 :
So the conclusion is you don't need the case and fan?
Insufficient data, but my conclusion would be that the case and fan are
probably providing benefit.
1) You don't know (insufficient data, as I said) whether the peak temperatures without extra cooling required throttling to protect the system. If they did, one is losing performance, which may or may not be a problem.
2) I find it difficult to believe that running any electronic component at or near the top of its rated temperature
range is a good idea, if there is a reasonable way to run it at more moderate temperatures, as is the case here.
