RaspiBoy Heat

Post by echoshard1 » Thu 21 Sep 2017 04:36

Hey everyone. My Raspi Boy is running a bit hot 60c+ I know that's kinda in it's temp range but I am concerned it keeps climbing.

I am testing out using some Thermal Paper but that did not seem to work.

Next I tried a Flat Copper Heat Sync but it's hard to get it to fit correctly.

Some Software tips was disabling the Wifi but I still get up to 60c while gaming. I am going to get some thermal tape next for the heat syncs and see what happens.

Are you running an overclock? If so remove it, not needed for the consoles the Raspberry pi zero runs well. Also, 60C is just fine for the raspberry pi zero, it doesn't thermal throttle until much higher.

I'm also wondering about this. PCB V1.2, no overclocking, pretty regular settings. The most high I have had is 68 'C (without the charger on), after 1 hour of playing. When should I be worried? what is the "critical temp"? would this be a problem and break my raspiboy?
