No but the iPad3 sounds like they could use them. Complaints about them getting real warm. Besides the area between the fins will hold more sequines.AndrewS wrote:Do people fit heatsinks to their mobile phones too?
For me, it was less about improving product lifespan as it was product stability. While I can testify that the Pi is more stable, I regrettably cannot attest to whether this is a factor of the heatsinks, or an over all improvement to the pi itself!pygmy_giant wrote:Surely the Pi is too new for anyone to quantify the effect of a heatsink on product life. I would guess that a heatsink would extend life, but from what to what? Doubt we'll ever know.
Too late I dropped a heatsink and it landed on the RasPi. It refuses to leave.AndrewS wrote:Let go of your heatsink. Trust the Foundation, Luke
Actually, no, the heatsinks keep sliding all over the place!AndrewS wrote:The thermal adhesive is strong with this one
That's why I used thermal tapeAndrewS wrote:Y'see! The Raspi is doing its best to get rid of the heatsinks it doesn't needLob0426 wrote:Actually, no, the heatsinks keep sliding all over the place!
Cu is a better heatsink material than Al, but it's probably gonna be surface area that limits performance for a sink of this size rather than materials.guidol wrote:I think copper would cool down the raspberry better than aluminium
