Heatsink and Fan on Alice Help

I have an Indivision AGA Mk2 CR. I turned up the resolution to 1280x400 (1280x800). However, I am starting to get tearing/artifacting. When I remove my keyboard and touch my alice and gayle chip they are burning finger hot.

I seen people mention about putting heatsinks and fans on the Alice chip. However, in a 1200 the alice chip is really close to the back of they keyboard.

Just seeing what the best method would be and pictures would be great.

Thanks.

You can buy low profile fans similar to those used in laptops, they are called blowers and exhaust the heat through the side and not the top. something like this...

Install a heatsink if you like. A fan would be silly. I don't even have a fan on my 68060 CPU.

This usually won't help, or just make artifacts to appear a few minutes later. This is my story of fixing this problem: https://rastport.com/techblog/removi...splay-trashes/
