YES, the Raspberry Pi 4 can definitely run hot.

The Pimoroni Fan Shim is a no-solder, plug-and-go solution that is CPU controllable with an RGB LED (and why not?) and programmable button.

As this module is CPU controllable, you can program the functionality of the button, RGB LED and fan. Use the RGB to illustrate CPU load. Set the button up for an emergency-shutdown (or FULL SPEED AHEAD fan mode) – it’s up to you.
