Thank you guys,

It seems that it is a known issue, and even prompted some users to 3D print active cooling elements between the flip screen and body (a frame that holds two small computer fans, and connects through a usb to a power source).

As for disabling the warning and auto-off, it is a safety feature, and I will try and tweak it but I don't want it off completely.

I have now to think about it. I do believe in I can find a passive cooling element that can function enough, to reduce the heat (basically, I have to calculate the dimensions for a heat sink fin structure. I'm not even sure if it should be a linear structure or a Bernoulli based structure. The later may offer improved convection through variance of pressure, especially since the heat source is at its epicenter (act like an oven chimney and draw cooler air onto it..).
