Heat Sink Options - Cooling Solutions

What are the best type of heat sinks for Amlogic chips? Is it also worth putting heat sinks on Ram and emmc?

True but any heat sink is better than none right?

Looks substantial and if it does what it should it can only improve performance.

My story is that I modded my old MXQ’s (S805) a year ago with self adhesive heat sinks and it made quite a difference in temps and reduced random judders to almost zero. So as I’m thinking of getting an S905X3 box I’ve decided that modding the CPU is a must to get the best performance. If I buy a box and still get random judders I’ll be more than depressed!!!

I would just bite the bullet and buy an NVIDIA Shield if I had confidence that it would provide the performance I want. They’re not cheap and I’m not rich enough to be complacent with my spending especially with the looming financial chaos to come!

Anyway, for clarity, I was wondering about heat sinks for boxes that for some reason don’t have a heat sink or have a badly implemented thermal solution, which is most boxes! Will read bubblegum57’s thread and see what that says.
