After using a s912 based box (mecool m8s pro l) for last couple of years, I decided it was time to upgrade.
Ordered the x96 max plus (I’m a bit of a tight sod).
Before putting it into use I stripped it down to have a look inside…wtf! That’s got overheating written all over it! PCB mounted upside down, massive thermal pad and next to zero ventilation.
So let’s mod
Bought a 3 quid tube of thermal glue and had some 2mm sheet aluminium lying around.
Cut a 20mm square of aluminium and glued it onto the s905x3
Then glued the existing heat plate onto the 20mm square.
Cut a 60mm square of aluminium sheet and glued that onto the existing heat plate.
Hole in case and have the box upside down with the heat sink to the top
