It doesn't need much airflow of the board to cool it quite dramatically. I use the board with no case, and just the airflow around my desk keeps it to 55 or so at idle. Moving it to vertical orientation can drop it another degree or so, as the hot air flow is a bit more efficient rising past the board.
Also seen this on a naked board they are fine solo without a hat mountain on them or a case that holds some heat in. I've another 4 which is naked and fine but is unobstructed.jamesh wrote: ↑Thu Jul 18, 2019 4:08 pm
Pimoroni has the Pi4 4GB in stock (actually they have all 3 flavors in stock at the time of this post).
Hope the micro hdmi cable/s are also on order/in your bits drawer if needed
MPC is good, but metallic copper foam is better.
I don't want to cancel an existing order (with Newark) that is supposed to ship in a week and then discover that someone else's web site has not kept up with their stock!HawaiianPi wrote: ↑Fri Jul 19, 2019 4:58 am

Okdo has 4GB in stock as well.

Yes, that's what they told me at about the same time.Flirc told me they're shipping in 3-4 weeks, 2 weeks ago.
They posted an update on Reddit on Wed. They didn't ship this week so the 3-4 week estimate is still correct.
Still looking like regular cases will go out this week or early next week. Kodi cases should go out end of next week. I’m getting them in batches so ping me and I can figure out where you are in the queue.
Newark has no clue whatsoever when they will ship. They're just making up the "Expected ship date" at this point. My launch day June 24 order was July 5, then 10, then 12, then 16, then 22. Each time the ship date got close they just pushed it back a few days so it didn't look too bad.
FWIW, I received my official PSU from Newark today - pity I haven't got anything for it to power!HawaiianPi wrote: ↑Sat Jul 20, 2019 1:13 am
What's that old saying... fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me. After being punk'd 4 times I gave up and ordered a 4GB from Pimoroni along with an official PSU (which neither Newark or Okdo had) and a Fan Shim. Didn't really need the Fan Shim, but it's just so cool (literally and figuratively). Actually, didn't need the official PSU at this point either, but it's always nice to have one and it didn't affect the shipping charge, so why not.
Hope you have better luck with Newark then I did (at least there are 2 more available now).
Checked my email before going to bed and found this.
