Raspberry Pi 4 Heat Sink Set is a low-cost heat sink built specifically for the Raspberry Pi 4B model. These high-quality Raspberry Pi heatsink kits are the right option whether you’re overclocking your Pi, running it in a hot location, or simply want your Pi to look great. It can help extend the life of the Raspberry Pi’s SoC and LAN chip by lowering their operation temperature. At the very least, heat sinks are fitted on the Raspberry Pi’s two essential components: the CPU and the LAN Chip. Some packages additionally include a heat sink for the Raspberry Pi’s back. In the official casing of the Pi 4, a heatsink is usually added. It is used to avoid throttling the CPU (and likely other components, as they all get very hot).
These heat sinks are comprised of high-quality copper and aluminium with a thermal adhesive coating. Make sure your gadget doesn’t become too hot. These finest alloys provide sticky thermal tape for excellent thermal transfer to the heat sink, delivering extra cooling to the IC for the maximum heat dissipation. These heat sinks are intended to fit inside common microcontroller boxes. Furthermore, these heat sinks are utilised to cool CPUs, regulators, and other components in other devices like as the BeagleBone.
Why Heat Sink?
- Reduces the risk of hardware failure due to overheating
- Low profile, will fit into most cases.
- Simple, Passive cooling. No need for noisy fans.
- Perfectly sized for the RPi’s CPU
