I would put it on the chip , can the board be bolted to an aluminium heatsink for better thermal conduction, or are there tracks underneath?

OK. I will try it with the hetsink on the chip and the fan.
I tried it without any heatsink and without the fan and supplying around 1.5A the chip got hot enough that I could not keep my finger on it so I wanted to keep it a bit cooler.
