It is time to hit the gym again. I got way to fat.

My new fan just arrived and I love it already. It is quiet and does a great job (Thanks to @jerry again for the recommendation).

I had to do some modifications to the case and the connection and it doesn't look professional in any way, but it works (so far).

Hey @jerry how are you doing? The noctua fan just arrived and before I try to do it myself (and destroy it) I wanted to ask you, how did you connect the fan to your Pi4? Have you made your own 3 to 2 pin adapter?

Holy what!

I've been playing a game with my Raspberry Pi 4 all day. Who is going to overheat first, me or the Raspberry?

Side note: I've installed the fan on the outside on purpose so the installed heat sink can stay on the CPU.

The Raspberry Pi 4 case arrived earlier than expected. Installation was easy and the CPU is way cooler, what means, it works.

Test environment:
3 hours, 2560x1080 screen, normal day to day work (surfing, email, coding) on the left + HD video stream on the right.

Results:
Before, open case 80C/ 176F
After, with this case with fan: 50C/ 122F

Better than expected regarding the temperature. Unfortunately the fan is noticeable audible, but it is neither too loud nor annoying tbh.
