Define normal usage? My 4B routinely hit 80c with just a browser window open to one of my surveillance camera network feeds. Heatsink no fan Pibow coupe case . Room temperature was around 24c.
Is that your PiBow case perhaps?
My 4B is at 50C just using the browser.
About 20C ambient.
Its a pretty open case, https://shop.pimoroni.com/products/pibo ... 00105299
And its the heatsink made for it.
I saw 54c after doing update upgrade, ambient was 22 c.
No case, no heatsink, no fan. Four short stand offs for feet.
No config.txt edits etc. Stock Buster install.
I got 41c on boot up after it had cooled down while I put my Pibow Coupe case on.
56c after sitting idle with just the desktop open.
51c with the heatsink on.
EDIT: I should mention that after that happened several times (hitting 80c), I have installed a Fan Shim with the fan running continuous. My temps are now around 40c no matter what I do on that Pi 4B.
