There’s no shortage of cases for the Raspberry Pi, and that includes the recently released Pi 4. We covered many different cases and cooling options in LXF258, but the Argon One Pi 4 arrived just a little too late for our test.
The Argon One Pi 4 is a stylish piece of kit that measures 140mm long, 93mm wide and 31mm tall. It looks like a prop from Star Trek and is made with an aluminium top piece and a plastic lower section. The Pi 4 is placed sideways inside the case, and a custom circuit board is used to break out the micro HDMI and composite ports to the chassis. There is another custom circuit board inside the case, and this contains a small 5V cooling fan, USB-C port to power the Pi 4, and two unused infrared ports for remote-control projects. Moving to the outside of the case, and all of the ports are located at the back, thanks to the custom circuit board and novel orientation of the Pi 4. There is also a power button! Yes, we can power the Pi 4 on and off, but more on that later.
