Pi Holder (Pi 3 B+ only) SECURE Case with Heat Dissipation
This case will only fit the recently released RPI 3 B+ on 3/14/2018 (not the original RPi 3 B released in 2016).
The new RPi 3 B+ Case is ready. It continues the theme of the built in heat sink pillars on the top and bottom of the board. This case has the best thermal cooling out of any case on the market, period. Thank you to everyone who has emailed an inquiry for the new case. It is an overwhelmingly humble feeling to know so many of you enjoy my cases.
This is the SECURE version of the case meaning the SD card is enclosed completely inside the case and access to the GPIO header has been closed off.
Finally! A sleek Raspberry Pi case that keeps the SD card safely secured inside and the CPU/GPU perfectly cooled. Milled out of 6061-T6 Aircraft Grade Aluminum, this case will outlast your Raspberry Pi deployment! This case is designed and manufactured by Barch Designs, located in the United States.
NOTE: This case will slightly reduce the range of the onboard WiFi/BT module. If wireless performance is important to you, we recommend using a USB WiFi/BT adapter with a dedicated antenna.
Especially tailored for users who want to install Raspberry Pis in public locations, this case exposes the external ports of the Pi and nothing more. In addition to preventing access to the SD card, this case makes physical contact with the Pi's CPU/GPU, LAN chip, and RAM (bottom), keeping the Pi nicely chilled. We've even included thermal paste compound with your order.
This all metal Pi case also features LED fiber optic light pipes, allowing you to easily tell what your Pi is up to. Both the power and activity lights are exposed on this case.
With three mounting holes on the bottom, it's a snap to robustly attach your Pi to a wall, desk, or kiosk. #8 wood screws recommended.
Included in your order:
- Milled Aluminum Case (Top & Bottom Halves)
- Neoprene Riser (ensures a snug fit without squishing your Pi!)
- Insulating Plastic Sheet (isolates your Pi from the aluminum)
- 4 Screws
- Allen Wrench
- Thermal Paste Compound or Thermal Pads
- 4 Rubber Feet
All cases purchased include a 5 year warranty. If your case breaks, we'll replace it. No questions asked.
When tested in a room averaging 17C, we found the following results with the Pi Holder (test originally performed w/ Pi 2):
