What do you think?

I think they are a bit 'overkill' and quite expensive. See the answer below.  Means, unless you want to run at maximum all the time, a cheap heat sink should do the job.

I guess this is correct and IIRC with the idea in mind helping to spread the heat (increase the surface of the SoC) for short high load. With the idea to have sane settings to throttle the SoC and keep the temperature on a healthy level software wise.

#me too ... soon after the power connector died :(   https://forum.armbian.com/topic/6909-pi-factor-power-solution/?tab=comments#comment-52516

But some day I will amend the power-HAT from @TonyMac32  cut out the middle part in KiCAD and see if I can get it manufactured in China. So this great board, with the gorgeous heat sink gets back to live :-D
