    Why? Is 65c too high? 65 doesn't seem that high and is a perfectly safe temp for modern chips.
    What's the typical surface temp of the Vic chip?

    Anyone? ...

    I didn't mean the new one is unlucky, it was the previous one the unlucky one.
    If the VIC circuit isn't enclosed in the metallic box and if the box cover doesn't have a tab that makes thermal contact with the VIC chip, by all means, put a heatsink on your VIC chip.
    I heatsinked my VIC-20 chip, 65C on the surface means the internal chip is probably around 100C already.
