[Pi3B+] can my heatsink Spacer touch the Wifi Module?

  • Hello Guys,
    I want to attach a medium sized heatsink to my Pi to chill the temperatures a bit. I obviously need a Spacer to prevent shorting out some of the bigger capacitors.

    Question is it a good idea to also "expand" my spacer to also touch and cool the Wifi Module? Would that cause problems (may connecting both metal shield is a bad idea) or even would it hinder my Wifi reception?

    As a material I will just cut down some 2mm Cooper Bar I have to the right size. And i will try to fit a also cut down old AMD Athlon CPU Cooler. I think that should do the job for some passive cooling.

    Thanks for advise
