Some games on MAME and N64 emulators are lagging so I installed a heat sink and a fan (recovered from an used laptop) and overclocked a little bit the Pi 3 following that guide.

Emulators are now running a a little bit more smoothly (some PSP / PSX games are not playable thought).

With the fan, SOC (overclocked) temperature is around 50 ° C.
