Orange Pi PC need Heat Sink ? - TnDan - 11-26-2019

Hi everyone! 

I have a OrangePi PC running Retrorangepi. 
My question is if I should install heat sink in the board or it is just fine with the case and no need to add this heat sink?

Thanks a lot!

Manufacturer recommends not covering the board, so if you do, heatsink and cooler are recommended. Even if there is no overheat, it's safe to increase lifespan and to avoid throttling and performance drops.
