pi-topOS does overclock the Raspberry Pi and this might result in the overheating symbol showing up under heavy load. The OS does slow down the cpu under these circumstances to avoid damage. The first thing to do would be to add a little heat sink on top of the cpu. They are sold by the stores which sell Raspberry Pi boards. On my system I still see sometimes the overheat symbol when looking at youtube videos on the full screen, but not under any other situation. If you keep the lid open in this situation it will help to dissipate the heat from the heat sink. I have not found it necessary to add a fan.
