The Steam Deck is an incredible handheld console. However, like most powerful devices, it generates a substantial amount of heat during intense gaming sessions. Excessive heat not only leads to performance issues like frame rate drops and unexpected shutdowns but also can potentially damage the device. Even worse, the device's battery could overheat and pose a fire risk.
So, how can you tell if your Steam Deck is overheating? Here are a few signs to look out for:
1. The device feels unusually hot to touch.
2. The console is making loud noises, indicating that the built-in cooling fan is working overtime.
3. The device is not performing as expected - it's experiencing frame rate drops or shutting down randomly.
4. In extreme cases, the device may emit smoke, which could suggest a battery fire.
To address these concerns, Steam Deck officials issued the following statement:

The EasySMX D10 boasts a powerful thermoelectric cooling system. This system actively draws heat away from the Steam Deck's casing and expels it into the surrounding air. With a dynamic fan speed exceeding 6000 RPM, it effectively manages the device's temperature.
The D10's ingenious buckle design ensures easy attachment and removal from your Steam Deck. It also features direct exhaust, which can cool the device down by up to 10 degrees or more, ensuring optimal performance.
The part of the D10 that contacts the Steam Deck is coated with a novel material: nano glue. This material ensures a 100% non-slip surface and leaves no residue on your device. And if your D10 gets dusty? A simple wipe with a damp paper towel will restore its stickiness.
