Want the cooling benefits of the IO board but without the extra features and price? Purchase a PCB fan board. It comes with a heatsink (the same size as the IO board - color and material may vary), as well as a 5V fan.
To run the fan on 5V, connect the red wire to GPIO1pin 11, and the black wire to GPIO1 pin 12.
To run the fan at 3.3V, connect the red wire to GPIO1 pin 29, and the black wire to GPIO1 pin 30.
The board is mounted using the screws that came with the de10-nano.
This is the TOP plate, fan and heatsink only.
