Ok, I see. Looks like this is good enough to even run the cpu at a higher
default clock speed, so it should be fine. This was a problem that plagued
the original Pi4 which is why you see so many 3rd party cases with active
cooling solutions on the market; I have one of those as well.
Okay. I will need to check if the Raspberry Pi OS delivered with the rPi

Yep, that's the official distribution, it used to be called Raspbian before.
In the meantime I'm learning that now Manjaro

No, they won't. But the OBS has aarch64 build targets for both Manjaro and
Ubuntu. I'm not sure whether these will work, but if anyone is willing to
test them out, just let me know and I'll enable these targets.
