All,

I’ve just ordered a cooling fan myself. I found that the passive cooling simply was not sufficient.

I’m running Ubuntu 16.04.3 LTS (as per the macchiatobin wiki) and my system is quite hot even when idle:

thermal_zone0 = 70 c
thermal_zone1 = 66 c
thermal_zone2 = 66 c

I’m concerned to run anything heavy as I do see the temperature go up very rapidly when there is anything CPU/memory intensive for example. Of course heat is the enemy in this case – so want to avoid damaging this board.

Any suggestions? I hope to have the cooling fan in the next few days.
