How can I add a heatsink to the hero3 black?

The hero3 (black in particular) has a lot of problems over the hero2 related to heat, perhaps because they got rid of the heat sink to make it smaller. It would be so cool to see a custom heat sink for this device!

Is this a good question?

It doesn't look like there's any room at all to add a heat sink, but you might be able to use a better thermal compound on the processor. We don't have any information on what GoPro uses in the factory, but chances are there's something better and more expensive out there.

It looks like there's no reasonable improvement regarding the thermal compound either. Thanks for the answer!
