Raspberry Pi 3 / 2 Best Cooling Solution | All in One Fan Kit.

Product Introduction:

The Geeekpi unique Cooling solution is designed especially for the Raspberry Pi 3/2 board series. The dual fan Kit is composed of two fans mounted on one single cooler unit that is mounted on top of the main CPU chip and the network chip, those giving both chips proper cooling. Because there are no mounting holes in the Raspberry Pi boards, attaching the unit is done with thin thermal tape, also included with the kit.

To cool the back side of the Raspberry Pi board 52Pi company included a flat copper heating pad with a one side thermal sticker that helps with heat distribution and provides good cooling without occupying extra height when the board is assembled inside a case. 52Pi stated that their solution is capable of reducing overall temperature up to in 20 degrees compared to other existing solutions on the market, which can be ideal for users that are into Overclocking related projects. That said, you are welcome to check more details about the product in the following links posted below:
