The cases featured here were designed for the Raspberry Pi 4. They may not fit properly for other variations.
The top cases for your Raspberry Pi 4
I’ve assembled a collection of all the coolest and best-designed Raspberry Pi cases I could find.
The cases here are diverse in style and use a wide variety of materials from aluminum to plastic to acryllic. There are some really beautiful cases and a few novelty cases that I couldn’t pass up on.
The price for a case ranges from $4.99 to $39.90, but most cost around $12 making them generally affordable.
Anyways, I think that’s more than enough introduction, so without further ado, here are my top picks for the best Raspberry Pi 4 cases of 2020.
1. Argon ONE$25.00
The Argone ONE comes with a higher price tag, but it’s a genuinely premium case. There is a fan and built-in heatsinks for cooling, and a removable magnetic cover over the GPIO pins. Plus, they added labels for all the pins onto the case itself, which is super helpful.
While it’s the most expensive case on this list, this extra-tall case by anidees is beautiful and well-constructed. It’s got a nice weight to it, it’s strong, and it makes your Pi look like a museum exhibit.
Cool, clean style and some thoughtful design choices make this a top case for your Pi. The use of magnets allows you to build the case without any screws, and it includes two powerful cooling fans built-in.
Turn your Pi into a miniature NES with this case. It comes with rubber feet and access to all the ports (but not GPIO pins), and includes a built-in fan.
5. Smraza Case$16.49
This case has an interesting nine layer design with a partially exposed interior that gives it a real gadget-y look. Since it’s made with acryllic, it won’t disrupt your Pi’s Wifi signal.
6. MazerPi Case$8.99
This is a really affordable and smartly designed case. You can screw it tightly shut and the GPIO pins stay exposed on the right side.
Looking for something more eccentric? The Ice Tower Cooler has a colorful and techy look that will turn heads. Not to mention, it will absolutely keep your Pi cool.
This case has a modern design, but it’s stand-out feature is the sliding top. This makes it really easy to expose the GPIO pins when needed.
Another case by GeeekPi, this one comes with a cool stand that makes it look like a gaming PC. You can stand it upright or on its side.
You can’t go wrong with the official Raspberry Pi 4 case. It features a simple and clean look with clearly labeled ports. The case snaps right together making it easy to assemble and disassemble if needed.
This case is made with acryllic and has aluminum heatsinks for improved cooling and rubber feet to prevent surface abrasion. It also includes a power cord with a handy on/off switch attached.
This design is sleek and gorgeous. Even better, as an aluminum case, it’s very sturdy and handles cooling better than plastic and most other materials.
If you’re looking for a simple transparent case, this one is an excellent choice. You’ll maintain access to all the ports and protect your Pi, but still get to show off the beautiful circuit board.
14. MazerPi ABS Case$4.99
If you want a simple and cheap case, the Mazier ABS case is for you. This no-frills case is easy to put together and includes a quiet fan.
If you need to stack your Pi’s, this cluster case by GeeekPi is an excellent option. It’s easy to assemble, sturdy, and has a simple clean design.
Which Raspberry Pi case is best?
What did you think?
There are some excellent cases available for the Raspberry Pi 4. I tried to inlude a good variety of styles and materials in this collection.
While some are more practical than others, my favorite is the Argon ONE due to its excellent design and the magnetic removeable cover over the pins. From a purely aesthetic standpoint, the extra-tall case by anidees is downright gorgeous.
Only highly-rated cases made it into this collection, so you shouldn’t expect issues with shipping and handling, or obvious design flaws. It’s simply a matter of personal preference and the needs to your project.
