Also that isn't how it works at all. You are essentially taking the better conducting copper and moving it up against the case that is really poor at conducting heat. All that is going to happen is that the copper will heat up quickly and the heat won't dissipate any faster (probably slower)

I have another opinion, you can keep yours, im not trying to convince you.

Have a nice day bra.

But in all seriousness, I found a thread doing this sort of mod on the OG droid. Click Me

Interesting mod.
You could even go further and make the outter piece of copper even bigger that covers the backside
of the phone going over the original cover.. you just need some mechanism to put it off (or
even make the whole back cover out of copper?!)

BUT im asking myself what happens if you forget it @some sunshine (;

I'm not one to leave my phone out in the open so that should be fine.

Haha good old CS 1.6

Undervolt/underclock CPU via custom kernel and increase thermal limit also with custom kernel

it's a lot easier, and more effective as the CPU will produce less heat

How does increasing the thermal limit help?
post #37 of 38
The CPU throttles (lowers clock) when it reaches a certain temp, causing the slowdowns that OP describes. This value should be adjustable on some custom kernels.
On my N4 stock throttle temp is 60c, I set it to 65c and it stopped throttling during benchmarks, resulting in higher scores. Reduced stutter in games too.

Ahh so it helps with the lag, but not with the cooling part; I get it now. I already have a custom kernel and I've undervolted it using smartreflex, but the temps still get quite high.
