    The fan is definitely working. It's pushing out hot air. The back of the switch gets hot near the heatpipe more than it did before. I'll go ahead and look at the other things as well. Thanks!!!!

    have you monitored your temperatures with liek tesla overlay? I mean that would be the easiest indicator if you know your cpu is throttling or not.

    the copper shield is a complete waste of space. i removed mine and put a ic diamond graphite pad on instead and my switch dropped about 7c.

    No I didn't but when I mean severely stutters, it's like playing at half speed when I play animal crossing.

    I know the graphite pad is supposed to be used without thermal paste but did you use any at all between the heatsink and the SoC? Also, did you put any thermal paste between the heatsink and the outer metal shield?

    Need verification but I am guessing that, the thermal pad is not thick enough to reach the IEM casing on the RAM chip, thus it could be building up heat, you need to ensure that it contacts the IEM casing if not the heat will build up. From what I understand, at least 1.0 mm thickness or 1.5mm then is sufficient.

    I've since removed the thermal pads and now the only difference from stock is that I removed the copper shim and used kryonaut. It just refuses to work docked and registers inputs slow, gets stuck on the home screen, and in-game in animal crossing it's like moving in slow motion.

    This sounds really like there is a damage on the board. I think it will be better if you can share images here. For people who have the experience to advise.

    What makes you say that? Is it because it's a little discolored? I think that's from the IPA because I just opened it and the writing is still legible compared to the picture. I'm not sure why it looks flaky. Maybe the light was at an able to the textured component?

    But either way, thanks for taking a look!

    It looks faded and I was thinking it might have been burned but if that is what you have done then maybe my worries are just extras.

    Any tips on removing the shield? or I should just ignore it? Pull off the copper tape and direct contact?

    I use ic graphite pad to repalce the copper shield but dont put anything between heatsink and metal shield i notice my switch screen and backplate seem cooler but area around the heatsink still a little warm i want heat spead around the metal shield not just concentrate around the heatsink
    Do i need to apply some paste on top of heatsink?

    This is my experience but I messed up my switch pretty bad. It will no longer dock without stuttering a ton. I'd say just leave the copper shield and repaste. If you really really want to get in the shield, then just get a flat pry tool and gently pry it up. There are little clips that hold it in. Be careful of the components near the shield.

    Thanks. I totally dropped the idea. Is too tight on mine, I had slightly bent it. Totally gave up. Just do the copper shield removal and the thermal pad Only.
