Want to keep your Raspberry Pi cool whilst keeping noise to a minimum? Standard fans are great for cooling your CPU, but having them always on can be distracting in environments that demand silence, such as living areas or your office.
This 3-pin software-controllable fan aims to solve that problem. The fan connects to 5V, GND and a GPIO pin (GPIO 14) and, using the Raspberry Pi configuration tool, you can tell your Raspberry Pi to turn the fan on when it hits a certain temperature set by you!
A great upgrade for our Raspberry Pi 4 cooling cases. We also include 4 screws and 4 nuts for adding to your own project enclosure if needed (fixing colour may vary between black and silver).
How to use
Just click the Raspberry Pi icon on the Raspberry Pi OS desktop, then select Preferences > Raspberry Pi Configuration from the menu.
Select the Performance tab, enable the fan and select your fan trigger temperature (currently the minimum is 60°C).
