The Arduino itself, running from 12V has no problems. This also uses a linear regulator also, right? Same as the ledstrip controller I mentioned.It only heats up when the ethernet shield is connected.
with a chunk of scrap aluminum (a/k/a "mass")
A 1/8-in thick, 1-in sqr of aluminum has the same mass (weight) as that same piece pounded out into a sheet of foil.
Yes and that foil would be a much much better heat sink than as a 1 in sq.
