The Heatsink Aluminum Case for Raspberry Pi 4 - Obsidian Black, by SparkFun, is an excellent solution for cooling and protecting your Raspberry Pi 4. This black, anodized aluminum case combines the functionality of both a heatsink and a protective enclosure, providing efficient passive cooling even under full CPU load. By utilizing this case, you can expect a significant reduction in temperature, with a cooling effect of 10-15°C. The passive cooling method ensures a completely silent operation, making it ideal for scenarios where you require quiet cooling, such as home media centers. The case is specifically designed to fit the Raspberry Pi 4 and comes in a sleek obsidian black color. Its anodized aluminum construction not only offers robust protection for your device but also enhances its aesthetic appeal.
To ensure effective heat dissipation, the case includes a thermal pad that establishes thermal contact between the CPU and the top case. This direct contact promotes heat transfer and improves overall cooling efficiency. Additionally, the package includes an Allen Key and a set of hex bolts, making it convenient to assemble and secure the case. Despite providing superior protection and cooling capabilities, this case doesn't compromise accessibility. It grants full access to all the ports, pins, and connectors of the Raspberry Pi 4, allowing you to connect peripherals and expand the functionality of your device seamlessly. While the case accommodates low-profile HATs and pHATs, it's crucial to exercise caution when using tall headers. It's important to ensure that no components on the underside of these modules come into contact with the metal top case, to avoid any potential short circuits.
