  • Enhanced Performance: By maintaining optimal operating temperatures, the heatsink contributes to enhanced overall performance and longevity of connected electronic components.


  • Fan Type: PWM fan active cooling
  • Fan cable: 4Pin JST
  • Weight (gross/net): 0.055/0.045kg;
  • Dimension: 105 * 80 * 18 mm


If the board is not hot, the fan will not spin. It's an actively managed cooler. If the board is cool enough, the fan doesn't spin because the board doesn't need cooling. As the temperature of the Raspberry Pi increases, the fan reacts in the following way:

  • Below 50°C, the fan does not spin at all (0% speed)
  • At 50°C, the fan turns on at a low speed (30% speed)
  • At 60°C, the fan speed increases to a medium speed (50% speed)
  • At 67.5°C, the fan speed increases to a high speed (70% speed)
  • At 75°C the fan increases to full speed (100% speed)

The same mapping of temperature ranges to fan speeds applies to temperature decreases as well, with a 5°C hysteresis; fan speed decreases when the temperature drops to 5°C below each of the above thresholds.
