Overview

This is an armor aluminum alloy case designed for the Raspberry Pi 4 computer model b, so this armor case is only fit to raspberry pi 4 model b. please refer to Armor Case if you want armor case for raspberry pi 3 model b+ / 3b;

There are two version: without fan version and with dual fan version to meet different needs.

There are only black case are in stock, and we will considing other color such Gray and Silver (Natural aluminum) colors soon.

Please contact us if you want bulk purchase.

Note: This armor case is only fit to raspberry pi 4 model b;

Features

  • Ultra-thin design
  • Easy to install
  • Fast Heat dissipation
  • Smooth and straight aluminum material
  • All ports and slots of the case can match with Raspberry Pi 4 Computer Model B perfectly
  • Open case design, you don't need to worry it will effect wifi signal any more
  • Reinforced aluminum material, lightweight and durable, long-lasting stainless
  • With 2 pieces of 2*20 female header to facilitate the use of GPIO pin header.
  • We use 3 picese silicon cooling pad (the thickness is only 0.5mm) to touch the shell body to dissipate heat. You can use the CPU grease to relace the silicon colling pad to get better heat dissipation.

Packing List

  • 1 x armor case for raspberry pi 4 model b
  • 2 x 2*20 female header (Convenient for you to use GPIO pin headers)

In the dual fan version, are the fans always on? Or they turn on on-demand when the temp rises?

I do have a design improvement suggestion. One disadvantage of running the armor case is there is no ability to mount any hats to the top of the case even though with the Pi 4 GPIO extensions are provided.

The improvement would be putting mounting screw holes on the top of the case to allow a hat to be mounted but mounted high enough to allow for air flow on the heat sink, likely with a extension installed.

Love the armor case! I modified mine, shaved paint off the contacts, shaved the legs until the cpu contact came in contact with the pad, put thermal compound on the cpu and the pads on the contacts of the 2 other chips. Without a fan I'm seeing 42 to 45C with light use, 65 under load.

With a fan I'm seeing 28 to 29C with light use and 42 under load.

I take that back, I miss typed. 34C under load with a fan but I'm also using a ridiculously fast 12v fan off my 12v power supply that feeds my 12 to 5v regulator. I plan to swap this out later for a Noctua 5v fan with a mosfet to be controlled by the Pi.

For fan controls for the Pi do a search for Pi speed control.

Bottom piece doesn't need anymore RAM cooling, as RAM is upper side, for case with fan.

I want to check if the SD card can be covered by the case. As it put the card in a much safer place then.

Only the very edge of the SD card sticks out just as it would without the case.
