In the previous installment of Learning with Raspberry PI We saw as monitor our Raspberry with RPi Monitor, and many of you may have noticed that according to the use that we are giving you, especially if we have done Overclock and/or Overvolt, the temperature of our Pi has increased.
Investigating areas of the Raspberry are heated more, I have come with a complete study published in Geektopia, and I've cooled it accordingly in two different ways that perfectly complement, Since the Pi can be quite warm.
To lower the high temperatures, avoid crashes, or that the life of our little be too shortened due to heat, You can refrigerate it sticking ones heat sinks in parts of the Raspberry that more heat emitted.
If this is not enough, We can connect a 5V fan to the pins GPIO as in the following diagram to cool in a way more efficient our Raspberry.
With sink We went down between 2 and 3 degrees Celsius, and by adding the fan We may lose a total of 25 degrees Celsius, as we can see in the following test before and after with the Raspberry lit during 14 consecutive hours.
For an option more silent, We can get our own system of cooling liquid for Raspberry, There are different designs tested but I have not implemented any of them so I can not offer temperatures data, just to show you this third possibility.
