Gameshell overheating

A bit late to answer, but. As with the current design, I don’t see anything that can really be done to improve that.

A heat sink will just spread the heat in the whole surface, but it does not cool way better, in the end you will have a bigger surface which is warmer. Only active cooling could improve things, but with the size of the GameShell, that’s not super practical.

Also, but limited with the size of the GameShell, having bigger space between the SoC and the back of the GS would also help not heating the case as it is doing at the moment, but that would need a complete redesign of the case, including the box for the CPi and teh one from the Screen, probably easier said than done…
