Easily modified for 3B+ in five minutes. I was having trouble with this, trying to pry the bottom off of the middle section. Don't do it that way. Instead, push the bottom away from the top on all four corners and it will come right off. It's even easier if the Pi is installed.I intend to mount this to a panel and expect that I'll be able to pull the middle piece from the bottom to disassemble, change the SD card, etc., leaving the bottom screwed in place. I'll update this review if it doesn't work.To use this for a 3B+ takes two modifications.1: You need to file away a bit of the plastic at the end of the GPIO header to make room for the POE pins, which otherwise prevent the board from sitting in the middle piece. I used a small, square needle file.2: Also on the middle piece, on the bottom (board side), there's a stand-off between the HDMI and power ports that interferes with a somewhat large SMT component. Take a sharp knife and remove half of the stand-off, until the board fits properly (there's a smaller SMT component on the 3B which also interferes with this stand-off, so I had to trim it down even for the 3B). Total modification time, well under 5 minutes.There's room for an ample heat-sink on the CPU, for both the 3B and 3B+. Mine is 14mm tall. The network chip is in a different place on the 3B+ so you can't put a heat-sink on that without more filing, but the network chip shouldn't need one. 5Nice Case but Doesn't Fit Raspberry Pi 2 100% The case is very nice and seems well built however it doesn't 100% fit the Raspberry Pi 2. I had to shave down a little bit of the plastic that holds the circuit board since it pushes against something on the bottom of the board. The holes for the CPU (and other chips onboard) in the case don't line up and the case isn't deep enough to allow me to add all the heatsinks I ordered. I will make a game server on it; which is why I bought the heatsinks. I'll end up ordering another case so it all fits correctly. I'll add some screenshots later.Would I order again? Yes if it was a Raspberry Pi 2 specific case. I noticed on the box it came in one sticker said for Raspberry Pi B+ and a second one listed Raspberry Pi B+ and 2. 3Improved design fits Rasp Pi 2 perfectly! I jumped into this transaction cautiously due to the previous reviews and the customer images. I intended to use a copper heatsink with my Raspberry Pi 2 and if the case didn't line up then I wouldn't be able to.Since the item title now states "New Version - Improved fit for Pi 2!", I figured I'd give it a shot. Sure enough, it fits perfectly now. You can see in my uploaded image that there is plenty of clearance and I was easily able to use 2 heatsinks with this case.This case is top notch. Very clean design with a perfect fit. The top pops off easily for quick access to anything you need. 5Low cost solution - Thermal Management needed For the price, it's a good little box.It's simple, small, and the pieces fit together well. All ports are easily accessible. Tooless design. The top seems to just sit in place, but holds on well enough.A Raspberry PI 3 will run hot in this box with a moderate load. There is nowhere to mount a fan without custom work.Some cat5/6 cables may have trouble locking in. Some addon boards will not fit.A hole will have to be cut in the bottom will have to be cut if you want to fit a heatsink on the bottom chip.They appeared to take the camera into account without putting a mount point.Stock Pi 3 with small heatsink:Ambient: 23 CIdle: 49 CFull load: 80 C (throttling)With custom heatsink and fan:Ambient:23 CIdle:32 Full load:41 C. 4Secretly Awesome Every time I get a Pi, I never get the case, but I think that's going to change. This case is actually really good for prototyping. It doesn't look like it, but there's a tiny gap between the top lid with the raspberry pi vent, and the middle part that holds the Pi against the bottom. This tiny gap happens to be wide enough for your standard jumper wire. Now instead of wires going everywhere, they're neatly coming out of the side of the case and into my breadboard. 5Pretty darn nice case but it is hard to use the mounting holes Pretty darn nice case but it is barely mountable as it states. The mounting holes are under the board so the only way I see that you can mount it, is to screw it to something, and then put the board in. It is a little tricky to get the board in place even when its not mounted to something so I didn't use the mounting holes. Instead I went with velcro. I know that kinda sucks. Also, if you are wanting to mount it upside down, I can see where a slight bump can cause the whole thing to come apart and let your board hit the floor. I put a small piece of electrical tape on mine just as a precaution. With this all being said, for a case in this price range, it really is a good deal. I wish they had made the mounting holes a little different. Maybe a dovetail adapter would have been better.Pros:- Lots of air flow- Looks super cool- Built fairly solid- Priced wellCons:- Mounting holes are under the board.- Little tricky to get the board in place- No screws holding it together so it can come apart if dropped 4Nice Looking Case With A Caveat I bought two of these, and they look really nice and appear to be quality manufacturing. However, if you're going to be running any intensive applications such as emulation or Kodi on your Pi I'd recommend a different case. Even with heat sinks both of the Pi 3's I installed in these gave thermal warnings. They appear to be well-ventilated at a glance, but the problem is that the bottoms sit directly on the surface of where you sit it, not allowing enough airflow underneath to properly reach the ventilation holes. Adding rubber feet on the bottom to raise it a bit might help, but mine didn't seem to include them. Otherwise these cases look great. 3Frustrating case ! I decided to replace it. I finally decided to buy another case for my Raspberry Pi. This case is annoying if you want to work on your pi at times. It has a sd card access slot but it is very flawed. The case presses on the card, so you have to be very careful when removing the card. When you try to put the memory card back in it tends to miss the card slot which you can't really see well and the memory card falls into the case, under the card. You have to take the case apart to get it out of the case. This brings up my second issue. Taking the case apart is very difficult. You have to pry it with a screw driver or something. It makes me worry I will crack the card as I try to pry open the case. So have have given up and ordered a new case. 1Does not fit B+ Does not fit the 3B+ despite saying it does.Luckily I was building this B+ for a friend and gave him my old official case. I'll be using this one for my old 3B.There are 4 new pins which block the plastic from closing completely.The lid also doesn't close completely, as that's blocked by the Pi itself.Not a great case, but I'll use it until I can buy a replacement. I do like the ventilation on it but that's about the end of it. 2Had somewhat higher expectations The black outer shell is glossy smooth and has a milky appearance to it. I tried cleaning it off with disk soap to no avail. The insides would seem well though out except I noticed the pi camera mounting posts are backwards and just won t work with the ribbon cable that I have without a lot of folding and twisting. The lid doesn t pop on and is more of a loose press-fit so that the lid will fall off merely by turning it upside down. The bottom is rather snug though, and everything aligns properly for my pi 2. I didn t try the 3B yet, opting to put this case aside for when I need one for heavy modification. 3
