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.

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