    $10 cheaper than elsewhere, time to get a nice case for the PI4.

  •  

    The deal on the pi zero cases has been going for quite a long time. I was waiting for so long to see if the pi 4 case would drop but it didn't, so I bought one. A month or two later it has dropped, but still well worth full price. I have both pi zero and pi4 version they are probably the nicest looking pi cases imo. I also have two Argon Neo cases and these look and feel nicer.

    These are great cases. I've had no issues with my Pi running Homebridge overheating in my hot office since switching from the official Pi case to this.

    I bought a couple of these cases a few months back. They look cool with their simple classic lines, certainly better looking than the 'Mickey Mouse' plastic cases.
    One operates 24/7 and is always on. It feels cool to touch always and of course is dead quiet having done away with the fan.

    Highly recommended :)

  •  

    Great case, bought one last month

  •  

    This is a good case and it's normally hard to find here, importing from the US is hard / pricey.

  •  

    Hmmm my homeassistant is still running at 43-48 with Flirc, it IS nice not to hear that blasted fan.

    •  

      Same here, but that is well within the acceptable temps, especially for Brissy

    If you don't already have a Pi it's probably better to start off with this,

      Why? Not doubting just curious your thoughts

      •  

        Much more powerful for not a lot more cash.
        *** for GPU usage or ML or AI applications that can benefit from CUDA cores
        otherwise no real benefit of Jetson.

          Part of getting a Pi isn't the performance, it's the active community, documentation, forums, support, etc. You can get cheaper SOCs Raspberry wanna be's such as the Orange, Banana, Pineapple, but the SOC on the Pi has a few extra things exclusive to the Pi on the silicon, and hence the active community, etc.

          Raspberry Pi has a larger community of users, better operating system support, documentation and more.
          Cool, you have a faster gpu, but do you have choice of os or any community support?

    •  

      maybe if your main aim is running ML/AI projects, but good luck getting a nice case like this for your nano.
      Plus its $60 more, and this is ozbargain after all.
      A lot of people just want to run kodi/pihole/home automation, which don't need the grunt of the nano.

  •  

    I run a Pi, bitwarden, nextcloud, tautulli etcc on mine in this case, pretty much never goes over 45 degrees.
    Strongly recommend, looks good too.

  •  

    This or the Argon One case?

    •  

      Both are good. Just double check the power requirements for the Argon One and that whatever power supply you have is up to spec. When the case came out it was noted that the extra PCB board used to move all ports to the front and to provide the full sized HDMI outputs consumed a bit of power and some power supplied spec’d exactly to match the Pi were resulting in unstable performance with the Argon. I think theres a recommended Argon one power supply, although I’m sure plenty others work fine.

      If you want access to the GPIO pins then the Argons more convinient.

        if 1TB worth of games ROM dont pull the ladies I dont know what will.

        •  

          Yeah me neither.

      •  

        What image are you using?

        •  

          For what? retropie? I actually paid a guy on ebay for the 128GB sd a few years back - everything already setup with roms for most systems. I know how to setup from scratch but frankly I couldn't be bothered.

          The image has lot's of mahjong arcades that I never play that I have not got the will to go through and cull. I use it with a pair of logitech F310 controllers. I have an proper USB arcade controller but I haven't bothered configuring it.

          I think it was built on raspian jessie, but I took an image (in case something went wrong) and updated myself to stretch or buster (can't remember which). I have imaged the updated version as well.

            @lunchbox99: I grabbed a 128 gig retropie build a while back which has some great games on it. I tried to get an xbox 1 controller working with it but buggered something up and now it doesn't boot into emulation station. Does anyone know the retropie auto boot script as I must have deleted it when adding a line for the xbox controller?

          Hit up arcade punks. Plenty there.

      Home assistant in a Pi 4. That instance has a few other services such as AdGuard Home, Network UPS Tool, Let’s Encrypt etc

      I have a Pi Zero also just running a second Adguard Home instance

    Any deals for Pi 4? I have this case sitting with me since October last year.

  •  

    Been this price for a few weeks now

  •  

    Thanks OP! Now I just need to find a Pi Zero WH for <$20!

  •  

    Are these the kind of thing you can print on a 3d printer?

    •  

      Maybe if yours prints aluminium.

      •  

        Sweet, I'm all set then

  •  

    Love this case. Just a shame I have hardly used my Pi4.

    I don't have a pi4 but I bought this case…

    FYI this case can impact wireless coverage if it is already marginal. Great looking case with good thermals otherwise

    Does anyone know if this fits with the raspi POE hat? Judging by pics I'm guessing no
