I recently got a used switch and I change the thermal paste and removed the copper sheet above the soc and put mx4 thermal paste and in Luigis mansion 3 the temps were Soc-63c pcb-57c skin-51c and fan speed was about 50% and ambient temp was 29c or 84f. Is that normal for the switch? or did I just maybe do a bad thermal paste application?

That's a bit on the hot side, though you also have a very hot environment. What were the temperatures before this?

As everyone in your last thread told you, there was zero reason to do this unless you had a specific problem. Was there a specific problem that required new thermal paste? Or is this something you made into a problem?

Temps were about the same before I changed the thermal paste but the fan speed was at 80% fan speed and that was just to loud for me
