This item is currently out of stock, but typically ships within 1-2 weeks. We fulfill orders on a first come, first serve basis :)

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.
