If you own a Raspberry Pi 4 B (regardless of any RAM size) which is the most popular since its launching in June 2019, you might need this case/enclosure :) This is pretty fancy yet practical casing designed for Raspberry Pi 4 B, it comes with opening for PoE header pins too. It's crafted out of high-quality acrylic layers with a transparent top and bottom (please do peel off the protection sheet) layer, and black layers in between. It's smooth, slick, and durable.
Simply stack the layers around your Raspberry Pi 4 B to protect it from the outside world.
It offers plenty of inner space, and if you need to access the 40-pin GPIO of Raspberry Pi, the top cover has opening for it. It is perfect casing for educator, beginner, or maker that need to access the 40-pin GPIO.
The case comes in 9 layers of laser cut Acrylic plate, stacked and screwed together with M3 bolt and nut. You just need to peel off the protection sheet on both side of each Acrylic plate. Take note on the sequence and orientation of the Acrylic plate, insert the Raspberry Pi onto base layer and stack the rest of Acrylic accordingly, then screw it back again :)
All peripheral ports are accessible. The 4xUSB port, Ethernet, 2xMicro HDMI port, USB Type C, Audio/Video jack, microSD card slot, GPIO, CSI, DSI, etc are nicely fit and accessible too.
The top layer comes with holes for cooling fan (included), yet it is optional for you to install the fan.
The case reserves the space for:
- CSI camera cable
- DSI display cable
- 40-pin GPIO
- Cooling fan and mounting holes
- microSD card slot
- USB Type C port for power
- 2 x Micro HDMI port
- Audio/Video Composite Jack
- 2 x USB 2.0 Port
- 2 x USB 3.0 Port
- 1 x Ethernet Port
- Processor Heatsink
- Ethernet & USB Hub IC Heatsink
- RAM IC Heatsink
Note: This product is just the case. It does not come with the Raspberry Pi board.
Note: Do check the acrylic plate sequence and mind the orientation of the 3rd plate. Normally 3rd plate is mistakenly placed in the wrong orientation, causing difficulty to access the USB-C and HDMI ports
- Easily stack together, only 9 layers
- Black and Transparent layer
- Acrylic plate, with protection sheet
- Cut-outs of all connection points
- microSD card cut-out
- Designed for:
- Dimension: 94mm (length) x 70mm (width) x 25mm (height)
We have done stress test by using stressberry on Raspberry Pi 4 Model B 1GB and 4GB, with and without the fan. The result is incredible. When we run stressberry, it will first cool down the Raspberry Pi 4B, then it will start the stress test that will require high power and generates heat. It will load the CPU to 100% and the temperature of the IC will increase over time. The test runs for 5 minutes and after that, it will idle then stop the stress test process. We run the program with and without fan then plot a graph to see the differences.
The picture below is stress test result for Raspberry Pi 4 Model B 1GB.
Picture below is stress test result for Raspberry Pi 4 Model B 4GB.
The CPU temperature will never hit 60ºC with the fan active cooling! So grab the case and utilize the Raspberry Pi 4B until its top performance.
