    I got one of these extra large GeekWare fan-less heat sinks for my Pi 4:

    (no affiliation, just a customer)
    It covers the entire top of the Pi PCB, so lots of heat dissipation area.
    I also used some thermal paste on top of the chips instead of using the blue tape to contact the heat sink.
    My Pi 4 now runs cooler than my Pi 3B+. And without fan noise.

    I have really liked the Pi-Armor cases. Even if the fan dies the pi stays cool.
    The whole case is a heat sink.
