Aluminium Armour Heatsink Case Assembly Instructions

Aluminium Armour Heatsink Case Assembly Instructions

This guide will show you how to assemble the Aluminium Armour - Heatsink Case for Raspberry Pi 4.

Step 1 – Unpack your case, you'll find a top layer, base layer and a small packet containing screws, allen key and thermal pads.

Step 2 – At the time of writing, you'll find two thermal pads; one thick, one thin. It's important that these are placed correctly so we've labelled them in the below image.

You'll need to cut the pads down to size and when ready, peel off the paper backing and stick to the correct pillar on your case.

Step 3 –

Note - It's really important that your Raspberry Pi is fully unplugged during this installation, as otherwise you risk shorting a component on the metal case and damaging your Raspberry Pi.

Unplugged? It's now safe to peel back the protective film on the thermal pad and place your Raspberry Pi into the case (upside down)



Step 4 – Place the base layer on top and use the allen key/screws provided to secure the case. All done!
