I don't know how how the 8GB ones would run (pretty hot, I imagine). The case is a little snug, as you know. If I were doing anything serious with that 8GB, I definitely wouldn't shove 8 Pis in that case. Maybe 4? And leave every other slot open? You'll probably want additional fans either way. Good luck!

:) let's see how my experiment goes.
The loveRPI PoE hat is quite compact and I will add some radiators on the components of the PI.
Then the fans of the case should have enough space for the air flow.
The original PoE hat is too size limiting and I think you're right with the air flow regarding it.
