Pi 4 Cooling Case + Better Thermal Tape

Afternoon, Well my pi 4 (4GB RAM) has been getting little attention seeing as Libreelec is not 100% stable for it but for work I was able to use it for a product that we sell (product needs a vm to run a java app to scan files and this is usually a VM) I was using a hacked pi 3 case as I had plenty around but as everyone knows (unless you are in bunker planning on Nuking Mars) the new Raspberry Pi 4 runs *Very* Warm.
