Cooling/Fan upgrades
#1
Hello. 
I have a Dreamcade Replay which seems to be very similar to the AK1. I have seen a video where a user added some thermal paste and a coin to keep things a little cooler. I would not want to go that route. However I was hoping to replace the stock cooling with a low profile heatsink with a better fan to keep things a little cooler, and ideally clear the top cover.
Has anyone else tried this? If so what model did you use?
Thanks

Reading your question forced me to finally test the Noctua NF-A4x10 FLX fan. The size fits perfectly to the original fan: 40x10mm.
I will soon check the correct operation after the modification, with the hood removed, if the fan is actually mounted correctly. I have a doubt after the first tests, while the device seems to heat much more than before! ...
I stuck my ear to the device to make sure of its power during the quick test, it seemed to turn, and I feel now to have a fanless device as it became perfectly silent! !

1st Update 40 minutes after the end of the bench: I am reassured, the temperatures have recovered to their minimum values.

2nd updateTo dispel my doubts, I uninstalled and reinstalled Coretemp. This time, the temperatures recorded are more consistent.

Thank you for taking the time to do this. I made a note of the fan you mentioned and will link this thread over to Replay Central so other users can take a look. I did not even think to just swap the fan.
