Does it matter which side of the board you mount the heatsink/fan too?
Yes. The key heating components, like power management unit and CPU, are placed at the bottom side.

Which I find to be a design flaw. If you place a heatsink of a fan you will make the board much thicker. They could place the CPU on the other side in thiis case the heatsinks would perfectly fit with the height of the pins

A customer designed thermal. Maybe a good sample for keeping it thin.

That's a great example. Unfortunately not every Lattepanda user has access to hardware required for building a custom cooling solution. Lattepanda is perfect almost in everything. The only things that keep me to switch my projects to Lattepanda completely is the lack of effective yet thin cooling solutions and absence of official Android build for the board. In any other way it is almost perfect

Hi!
I received my new heat sinks yesterday, and just tinkered around with them:

For reference: 40x32mm heat sink, small raspi-heat sink, 5V fan.
I made a mistake and got two of 40x40x11 mm heatsink, any help with a case?

Or at least, in how to modify an existing case?

Have you tried a cooling solution such as a fan or heatsink

The sensor is mounted in a plastic frame as a rule, so conductive cooling is not that effective, unless you are using a cold finger and the sensor design allows it.
