Yes, just sit on it when you play COD and you'll be fine.

Somebody asks this every single time this case goes on sale.

Is there anything good about this case? Yes, it's that it does not need a fan. Do you like hearing the noise from a fan? Then this case is not for you. Would you like a completely silent case that can adequately cool a Raspberry Pi passively? Then this is the case to get.

Thanks, I picked one up. Been meaning to make my own case, but never got around to it and my pi is getting dusty.

So, I got this on the last sale and I haven't been able to put it to use just yet.

My current Pi has a heatsink attached already and it doesn't fit this. Is there any way to get it off?

There are similar cases with a heat sink/fan included that sells cheaper.. e.g.

Thanks!

This case is made out of aluminum and act as a gaint heatsink for the pi. Most of the case in the market right now does not.

I bought one because I really liked the look of it. Was willing to pay a couple dollars more.

Depends on how it was attached but it most likely just uses thermal tape. Basically you'll want to heat it until it loosens and then carefully pull it off. You can probably do that by putting the pi under load until it heats up. You can also use a heat gun or maybe even a hair dryer depending on the power but you'll need to be careful not to damage other components.
