Akasa have released an aluminium fanless case for the new Raspberry Pi 4 Model
B. The Akasa Pi-4 heatsink / case is a customised thermal kit with heatsink top cover to dissipate heat away from the hot zones, namely the Raspberry Pi CPU, GPU and USB 3.0 chipset, effectively cooling the Raspberry Pi 4 chipset and ensuring
the system runs heavy workload.
Akasa's heatsink top has a black
sandblasted, anodised aluminum finish to give the Pi-4 a refined look and feel. The case will look great in any
environment as an HTPC, web server, NAS or otherwise. Compact and sturdy, according to the manufacturer.
The Pi-4 thermal kit consists of two aluminium blocks, hi-performance thermal pads and compound. Measuring 6 mm thick, the heatsink top cover takes the heat passed upwards from the aluminium
blocks and dissipates it into the air. Extruded fins on the top cover increase surface area to aide heat dissipation. Coupled together, the thermal kit and heatsink top cover reduce temperatures in the Rasberry Pi 4 chipset. Using the Raspberry Pi 4 dual 4K video capabilities, the GPU can get quite hot. The thermal kit of the Akasa Pi-4 was designed for such thermal situations and significantly reduces the GPU temperature.
Akasa will have a mounting kit for the Pi-4 shortly, to accommodates wall mounting or DIN
rail, making the Pi-4 ideal for a range of commercial and industrial applications.
