Making clusters with the Raspberry Pi Zero is a popular project for our favourite little Raspberry Pi. With the Raspberry Pi Zero 2 now offering huge performance increases in the same great format, we wanted to make a souped-up version of our original Mini Cluster Case.
This version of our Mini Cluster case features extra bulges at the sides to accommodate two cooling fans (included), helping to keep the hotter-running Raspberry Pi Zero 2 cool. We offset the fans to the right to make the case compatible with the 8086 Horizontal Fan Controller (available separately) to give you the option to add fan software-control!
Please note: Simple assembly required. Please see the assembly guide.
You will need to solder a male GPIO header to your Raspberry Pi Zero 2 to use the fans with this case.
If you've got a bunch of Raspberry Pi Zeros running as a cluster, or simply have lots of Zeros running different projects, our Mini Cluster Case with fans is a smart and tidy way to stack them all together in a single case whilst keeping them cool.
The Mini Cluster Case with fans holds 2 Raspberry Pi Zero boards (any version). If the case is as popular as we expect it to be, we'll be releasing a layer pack to extend the stack even further.
Just like our larger Raspberry Pi 4 Cluster Case, it's made from our special perspex that looks just like glass – but without the cost! It also uses the same 5V GPIO fans for cooling.
All the Pi Zero ports are accessible, including an oversized cut out for the micro-SD card slot for easy SD swapping. The case supports all models of the Raspberry Pi Zero so you can even stack your older models alongside your new Raspberry Pi Zero 2.
It looks fantastic alongside our black fixings and makes a great addition to any desk. We’ve even removed the mount holes on the top layer for a smarter, cleaner look.
Rubber feet are included to ensure your cluster stays put on your desk - you'll find engraved circle position markers for you to ensure your case looks as smart as possible.
- 3x laser-cut glass-effect Perspex layers (Wide base, middle layer, top layer)
- 2x 5V GPIO fans
- 4x Rubber feet
