Many of us today, for example, use a Raspberry Pi as a multiplatform multimedia center in our living room although, the truth is that the best thing, especially if you are going to use it for this purpose, may well have it hidden in some kind of hole accessible or have opted for buy some kind of housing, something that usually does not work out at all well since in many occasions these, they do not respect too much issues such as refrigeration.
To solve this section and above all offer a much more consistent aesthetic image, the guys from Kodi They surprise us with a case that you will surely like since, among other things, it stands out for having been manufactured using materials as interesting as aluminum. Thanks, for example, to this, it is possible to improve cooling compared to all those cases made of plastic while offering a very interesting exterior image. As a detail, despite having used this material, the casing is available through its official store at a price of U.S. dollar 20.
Going into a little more detail, we realize that this new case is actually a custom version of the one offered by the guys at FLIRC. This does not have to be bad since thanks precisely to this quality the case is fully compatible with Raspberry Pi Model B +, Pi 2 and Pi 3 models Although the truth, at least in terms of cooling, is that it has been optimized to work with the Raspberry Pi 3 due to its great ventilation needs, especially when we overclock.
As would be expected, in the proposed design still we still have access to special ports and connectors of the motherboard such as the microSD slot, Ethernet port, 3,5 mm jack, HDMI output or the 4 USB 2.0 ports. As a negative point, it should be noted that, because the indicator LEDs are located in different positions depending on the board, there are versions, such as the Raspberry Pi 3, where they cannot be seen with it.
