    DIY Raspberry Pi Heat Sinks

      Hey everybody, I am sure most of you have noticed the heat output of the RasPi. While it isn't an issue in a room temperature environment, it could be in hotter places like an enclosure or parked car. That's why I took it upon myself to modify an old chipset heatsink from a Dell Pentium IV based desktop PC. A half hour project turned into a solution that  is no taller than the usb ports, yet keeps the device about 17 degrees Celcius cooler than stock!
