I am beginning to assemble an Adeept DarkPaw robot and am concerned about whether I am better off using a Raspberry Pi 3 instead of a Raspberry Pi 4.  My concern is about heat.  While the bracket fits between the Raspberry Pi 4 and the header board, it does not leave any room for most of the cooling fins.  The only chip that you can place a cooling fin on is the CPU.  That leaves the other two or three chips without any easy way to shead heat.

So my question is that even thought the DarkPaw works with a Raspberry Pi 4 would I be better off using a Raspberry Pi 3?  The assembly diagrams all show Raspberry Pi 3's.

In other words, what would I be giving up if I used a Raspberry Pi 3 instead of a 4?

Adeept DarkPaw supports Raspberry Pi 4 and Raspberry Pi 3, you don’t need to worry about fever, it will not be feverish under normal circumstances.
