The Pi Board before the heat sinks

After applying 5 aluminum heat sinks. I used thermal pad that is similar to a putty to stick them on. the main processor has 4 of the 10 x 10mm heat sinks. the smaller chip which I believe is the ram only has one.

The smaller chip is the USB hub and Ethernet adapter. The ram is integrated into the main chip along with the CPU and GPU, which is why it's called a System on Chip (SoC).
