.... I've got an IQaudIO DAC+ on the top so that was blocking the airflow, .... ......expecting IQaudIO to release a suitable Pi 4 compatible case .....
have you got your IQaudio DAC work properly in Raspbian Buster?
not having an audio DAC HAT working on the RPi4B is the only one keeping me from upgrading my RPi3B+ desktop

tried Raspbian Buster on this RPi3B+ (my current desktop, but still on Stretch) but there was no audio coming out of my DAC HAT amps....
used the same dtoverlay configs as I did on my stretch setup

thus made me rethink about moving to Buster now.... until this problem (its a problem, not an issue, for me) is solved

anybody else have had their audio DAC HATs worked properly on Raspbian Buster?

Yes - absolutely no problem getting it working for me - just inserted the relevant dtoverlay line in config.txt as with previous models of Pi. (I'm using a slightly older version of the Pi-DAC+ with a blank EEPROM - newer versions use the standard HAT auto-configuration magic).

ok, thanks for your input... :)

might try it again later this week.... as am still tied up in my new NAS project ;)

will try it first in this RPi3B+ with a new Buster Desktop install before trying it again on the RPi4B-4G
