But when the case is closed the underside of the case gets hot, not only under Alice chip but like half of the motherboard - heat spreads unbelievably. Because only Alice gets really hot, I'll put one heat sink on it - will have to customize it with a pile to fit in.
I bought some selfsticking copper vga ram heatsinks and put four of them on the alice chip (right about covers it)

haven't done much testing yet, but i had it up running for about 2-3 hours now without problems.

The heatsinks does actually get pretty warm.

The good thing about the vga ram heatsinks, is that they are only 5 mm high, so no need of modification.
