Aluminum Heatsink Case for Raspberry Pi 4 - Rhodolite Red

Why use a heatsink and a case, when you can use a heatsink case?! This red, anodised aluminium case for the Raspberry Pi 4 will give you 10-15°C of passive cooling under a full CPU load. This case is great for situations where you want completely silent cooling, like home media centers.

It comes with a thermal pad to provide thermal contact between the CPU and top case, and a handy Allen Key and set of hex bolts to attach the case together.

The case gives you access to all of the ports, pins, and connectors. You can just about get away with using low-profile HATs and pHATs (those without bulky components on the underside) using one of our tall headers, but be extremely careful not to short any components on the metal top case!

Ideal performance and protection

This arrived within 24 hours!! Installation was quick, and the temperature of my RPi 4 has not exceeded 51° after two weeks of use, including streaming 1080p video and opening multiple web pages.

It looks great and does a silent job keeping the RPi at normal operating temps.


I am so Impressed

This really is a great product for reducing the heat on the PI. I was running some AI training and the heat kept creeping up after just a few minuets of running the jobs. I decided I needed to protect the PI's so I purchased a couple of these heatsink cases and the temp holds steady now. the only thing I really wish is the description would provide the screw's sizes because I would like to get longer screws so I can mount the PI's in another case for my cluster.

Fits snug and dissipates heat but limits GPIO accessibility

It's a nice looking heatsink and seems to dissipate heat well but it is too snug around the GPIO pins for most ribbon cables. I didn't expect to fit a HAT with this heatsink in place but a standard 40 pin cable should not be a problem. I eventually used a metal hand file to shave off the plastic from both sides of my cable's connector, but it was still a tight fit. I would love to see a revision of this heatsink with a slightly larger opening around the GPIO pins.
