  • I followed the instructions on the Pimoroni website but no matter how slow or careful I was removing the white and clear plastic from the blue thermal pad the thermal pad came off in several pieces. I have the green heatsinkcase. I have applied thermal pads of several other heatsinks and never had this problem. Same thing with the other thermal pads in the kit even using an exacto knife to assist in the removal of the clear and white plastic. I also noticed that my wifi connection was poor after mounting the case. Is the metal heat sink interfering with the wifi chip on the Pi? Also the instructions only mention applying the thermal pad to the cpu, not the other two chips.

No public wish lists :(
