It's just a heat sink, the thermal conductivity of the metal (Aluminium?) is higher than the chip, it "sucks" the heat out of it, and then because of the high surface area of the sink vs. the air, the heat is effectively dispersed into the surroundings.

Hi can you post more pictures how did you make stick? Is on top of the bare chip or something else can you also post your temperatures

P.S now it got no fan isn't going to get hotter even with this

i "glued" it on the bare chip with adhesive thermal grease (the white stuff between the heatsink and chip), it holds pretty well. and i haven't measured the temperatures yet (i actually don't know how :/ )

Can i get a link of the adhesive thermal grease you used and what about the fan is in no use?

the fan is not in use, but i will put a fan into the new tube-like case (it will look like the new macpro)

I really like this mod, I am eager to see the complete set up with case. and I'm sure that is plenty of cooling even without the wind tunnel action.

Please don't, just post them here! I'd love to see what you've done.

here's a rough plan, how it should look like:

the red cuboid it the PSU. i will use this one: CLICK ME! (http://www.ebay.com/itm/EOS-130-WATT-OPEN-FRAME-POWER-SUPPLY-VLT130-3100-S2-/221256150458?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item3383e4edba) it's pretty small and gives enough power (maybe more than that ^__^').
the blue cuboid is the usb-hub. i will cover the usb-port on the ouya. the green circle on the buttom is the fan (i don't know which one i should use: 80, 90, or 100mm with rounded edges).
if everything fits, i will put a usb-stick or HDD in the case, but a usb-stick would be enough.

Why you need a power supply?

12V for the OUYA and 5V for usb-ports. i don't think 500mA would be enough for 7 ports

Ambitious! Looks like a great case though. Any idea yet what materials you will use to build it?

i think i build an inner cage of metal to fix the components and a plastic tube, which i can pull over the cage.

More curious as to if you were going to use a clear polycarbonate tube (for some spiffy lighting! :D), acrylic, PVC, copper, Pringles can...

yea, i already thought to use an acrylic tube^^

That will look nice if you can build a snazzy cage to bolt everything to.

If you are going to make a case that size is get to fans one up top for intake. And another one the bottom for outtake? Just a suggestion.

2 fans would be useless^^ the ouya doesn't get hot at all (without fan)
