heatsink, overheat, raspberry pi 3 -

While conducting our internal engineering load tests of the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B, it became evident that the Raspberry Pi 3 REQUIRES heatsinks. Without them, the board will overheat and experience thermal shutdown, corrupt HDMI signal, and video corruption. SoC diode temperatures are also incorrectly reported lower than actual temperatures. A test of 4 threaded sysbench resulted in the imagery below. We suggest active cooling for this board. At full load, it generates considerable heat and will become unstable. Once we get stock, our Raspberry Pi 3 boards will come with free heatsinks. Our kits for Raspberry Pi 3 will be actively cooled...
