A stylish, ergonomically designed aluminium case with passive and active cooling and safe shutdown options - make your Pi 4 look cool and feel cool!
Made with aluminium alloy and polished with a smart grey finish, the case makes your Pi 4 look modern, sleek, and stylish. Its minimalist design keeps cables in one area, and offers great cooling with properly placed vents. Ultimately, the Argon One Case combines functionality and futuristic aesthetics all in one package.
Update: We're now stocking the Argon ONE V2, which comes with improved dual-monitor support for the Raspberry Pi with two full-sized HDMI ports, built-in IR Support, and two power management options - automatic booting or “Always ON Mode”.
The aluminium alloy case doesn’t just make the Pi look cool, but it also makes it feel cool. The case connects to the processor with a thermal cooling pad so that heat from the processor is transferred to the case. This means that the case becomes a heatsink, passively cooling the motherboard so that the Pi can work without building up much heat. It also comes with a built-in PCB board with a fan attached to actively cool the computer further. These two cooling systems combined guarantee long-lasting use without overheating. The fan speed can be configured anytime via the terminal, as well as the conditions for changing the fan speed passively.
All the ports of the Raspberry Pi are accessed at the back to ensure that cable clutter is at a minimum. This also makes the computer easy to tidy and pack up when on the move without compromising any ports of the motherboard.
Easy to Assemble
The case comes with a top and bottom, 4 screws, a built-in PCB Board, a silicon cooling pad, and a PCB Board that extends the audio and micro HDMI ports. Assembling the Raspberry Pi with the case though is as easy as 1, 2, 3 or A, B, C. Combining the parts together is simple and intuitive. All that’s needed is a Philips screwdriver to tighten the screws to the bottom of the case. No special tools needed at all. After assembling the computer and installing the OS on the SD Card, a one-line script needs to be typed into the terminal so that the power button and fan can be used.
Accessible GPIO pins
The case was designed with one main purpose, protecting the Raspberry Pi without compromising the full functionality of the motherboard. The built-in PCB board extends the GPIO pins of the Raspberry Pi. When the pins aren’t in use, they’re covered and protected by a magnetic removable top. This makes the Pins accessible at all times, allowing the computer to be used in various electronics projects.
Safe Power Button
The case comes with a simple power button to turn the computer on and off while ensuring that the files stored are safe. When the one-line script is installed, the power button has multiple functions depending on how the button is pressed.
