The Dreamcast is an amazing console. Many would say ahead of it’s time. But being disk based, a cheap SD card solution has been a long time coming.
That has all changed in recent years due to the cloning of the GDEMU card by Chinese manufacturers and a GDEMU clone can now cost as little as £35. The replacement of the Dreamcast’s GDROM with a GDEMU can cause air-flow issues inside the console, causing the unit to run much hotter than it was designed to.
The answer to this is a to fit an SD card remote mount kit which restores the original airflow to the console and also either a PICO PSU or Dream PSU which run much cooler than the original built-in PSU, the latter of which I will also be fitting in this video. You can also fit a Noctua Fan but I have so far not felt the need to fit one as the unit now runs sufficiently cool enough.
