    Hello friends. I made a cooler design on the picture. Would that be effective?

    That would radiate heat from the heatsink, but that heat would just stay in the chassis.

    Not sure how much difference those added heatsinks will make but if you want effective cooling, just leave off the bottom cover, install rubber feet on the chassis (taller feet for the back portion), and cool it with some fans. Cool air hitting your heatsinks will definitely drop temps.

    One cheap way to do this is get a couple of 120mm 12V desktop fans powered by a 12V DC power adapter and mount them in one of those cheap Ikea plastic laptop stands. The whole thing can be accomplished for around 30 USD (depending on the fans you buy), but you will need to cut out the holes in the plastic stand which is easy if you have a large enough hole saw.

    adding more mass to heatsinks will slow it down from heating up. But from my experience, when it heats up, it's harder to take the heat away also. A heatsink and fins would be more effective if you could run more airflow on them. Spinning the fans faster and replacing the thermal compound with liquid metal applied on both sides works best.

    You're basically referring to thermal mass. Some more general information can be found here and here.
