It's not too bad. I did tinker with it though. Switched out the stock thermal pad for a Fujipoly 17 (seems like the ideal setup for a high performance pad) and thermal taped in a .4mm copper plate (I picked up from Hobby Lobby) under the battery cover. Unfortunately the ThrottleStop couldn't overcome the intel y + dell constraints. It runs like a faster, more reliable XTU. So I'm still stuck at 6w power limit. The tablet still is pretty nice for the $144 ebay + $35 cooling supplies I paid for it. It is near desktop speeds for internet and can handle very light games like Minecraft, Roblox, Slime Rancher for the daughter, but Goat Simulator is a bit of a struggle and sometimes drops below 30 on 720 low. Here's a thermal test with all covers on like stock and it sitting on edge behind my desktop in a 73f room:
