To clarify: I'm building a kernel on it and my CPU is currently hotter than my coffee.

I've better idea,

let's pour cold water on the device to get even better.

oh come on...
Don't praise me


@bshah I make sure it's flowing manually

but it seems leaky, there's less and less fluid in the system

@bshah fans? you can't see it but there's colorful leds inside!

@kuleszdl I can get it up to 57 degrees when loading it 100%, the cpu is bonded to the case with a thermal pad for heat dissipation

@martijnbraam oh okay, that's fine then. I expected your cup to be hotter and thus feared the aluminium case was not sufficient for passively cooling the rockpro64 at load.

@martijnbraam oh c’mon, not even one joke in the comments that Brexit gives free marketing to BrixIT Computers & Automatisation? xD

@kmicu I have a spike in visitors on my site when brexit stuff is in the news in the Netherlands
