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 P122-B 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;

Refer to RPi4-Cases to see more raspberry pi 4 case.

Features

  • Model: P122
  • 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 replace the silicon cooling 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)

What is the height of the top heatsink piece? And bottom heatsink piece? I assume I could use either/or?

after a quick check(don't wanna disassemble it), the total height with rpi installed is 25.54mm(w/ 0.02mm precision)

approximately, the lower plate is 8mm, so i guess the upper plate is 17.54mm

16.54 i mean(rpi is 1mm height)

Oh and, is it ok if i use GPIO to control the fan so i can make it active cooling?

wondering if it's possible. I'm currently thinking use GPIO direct control, use a transistor, or a relay+transistor

Hello, this P122 version with fan is to control the fan via GPIO.

Please note the connection of the fan

i see. I understand it as "the speed is controlled by voltage". so i think maybe i can make it active cooling with auto fan speed control with script that controls GPIO which can control the voltage in a range of 0V、3.3V~(/)5V?

just a assumption. i'm wondering if it's prohibited to do so.

for example, i can make a script that reads the temperature of the processor or other chips. if the temperature is over 40°C, the fan activates by providing 3.3V, and as the temperature rises, the voltage rises to 5V max as well when it reaches 60°C

(or if dynamic voltage control is not possible, i can replace the temperature rising part to 3.3V static)

Hi, we understand what you mean, you are talking about programming through scripts to realize the control of fan speed through GPIOs, but we haven't tested it so far.

hi, i also own this case. i'm wondering if, my thermal tape happens to have one side double-side-taped, should i attach the glued part to the shield or the chip? thx!

Hi, this doesn't really matter much, shield or the chip are both viable

Hi, I'm a owner of this case, and one year later, fans started to do some annoying noise, and I need to replace them. Where I can find others fans with the same specs?

How long can fans (on dual-fan version) run without stopping?

SoC pillar is too tall for 1mm thermopad. Either cut it down 0.5mm or provide 0.5mm thermopads. Had to trim the pad in half otherwise rPi board was bowing.

Hi, sorry, it must be related with some invidual thermal pads, you can thermal grease to replace it to get better dissaption.

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

Hi friend, The fan is always on if it is connected, please try to contact the fan to 3.3V and GND for quiet cooling mode if the temperate is not high.

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.
