Please do not buy if you are using Pi 3 Model B+
I would definitely recommend this case for Raspberry Pi 3B+, it fits perfectly.
The color of the main frame is black and the removable pieces are a dark shade of gray, so it's not really entirely black, but it still looks cool.
This Pi 3b case will also hold a Pi 2b. All connections and port openings are the same EXCEPT for the placement of the small display Led's.
The Pi 3 case and board has the LED's on the right side of the back case.
The Pi 2 case and board has the LED's on the left side of the back case.
If you have a Pi 2 case and would like to use this Pi 3 case do not expect to see the LED's
- nice design
- no screws to put it together (5 pieces that click together)
- sd card easy accessible and not sticking out of the case
- lid can come off easy for piface or gpio access or cooling
- rpi2 board fit very difficult force required to jam in in place or else the case doesnt close
- no holes on the back to mount on surface, velcro required
Other than that, great case. I love the modular design and the sleek black/gray look.
Great case for the Pi 2. No screws and everything snaps together. Room for a top board like a DVMEGA - just drill a hole in the top lid for the antenna opening. A Pi 3 will fit in this case BUT the 2 display LED's are on the opposite side of the back board on a Pi 3 compared to the Pi 2 - all other ports are identical. So if you do not care about viewing the blinking lights this case will work with a Pi3 even though it was designed for the Pi 2.
I also have the black and dark gray Pi 3 case. And again it is identical to this red and white case except for the location of the clear plastic lens. .
There is also no ventilation, which means any heatsink may not actually provide any noticeable difference due to the confined space. There are mixed reviews over whether or not a heatsink should be installed if you are building a retropie gaming console, but for just a few dollars more, better safe than sorry. I will be replacing the case before long term retropie use.
This is a very nice case if you need something slim and simple. Everything snaps together, and nothing feels cheap. I cannot overlook the extra millimeter it would have taken to be compatible with jumper wire.
I bumped the review score up for 4 stars from 3 stars. The reason for this is that the case is actually quite nice and simple. The top plate was easy enough to modify with a dremel tool to all ow enough room for jumper wire, and the plate still snapped on perfectly.
As far as the actual core temp while under load, it has been fine. I added a small script to log the core temperature every 30 seconds or so, and the highest recorded temperature under load was about 70.3'C. I'd say the average is around 66.5'C. This was logged while using RetroPie to play Vagrant Story, Quest 64, and Legend of Dragoon over a length of 3 or so hours each. The house here is kept around 75'F though, which may contribute to a lower core temp for the unit. If you live somewhere with a hotter climate like Texas, then a case with a fan may be a better option.
I have ordered this case: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B012GPCLR6/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 and will test the core temperature with the cooling fan and a heat sink. I will report the core temperature findings here after I get the new case delivered.

It’s a lovely little case that simply snaps on within seconds and fits like a dream. It has certainly added a layer of protection for my Pi and I can now also sit things on top of it which is just great.
Summary, a nice looking case which fits perfectly. Add stickers for personalisation. 👍🏻
Being the 'official' case, it obviously fits the Pi well. In fact my only complaint is that the lid fits tight so you either have the lid on and nothing connected to the board or you have to have the lid off so cables can make their way out.
Edit: after dropping my case, I discovered the side panels click off providing easy access to the GPIO header, etc. Also having taken the lid off a few times the case sometimes comes apart instead of the lid coming off which can be annoying. I've ended up gluing mine together to stop this happening.
Both sides of the case and the top come apart, giving easy access to fit the Raspberry Pi 3 and all ports onboard.
It has a very nice matte finish all around and everything fits perfectly.
Mine came with 4 high quality feet that come on a strip (check packaging for it), so you can choose to install them or not depending on how you want your setup to be.
- Great build quality
- Perfect fit for Raspberry Pi 3
- Matte finish
- Easy to assemble/take apart
- Room for all kinds of attachments
- Good price
- Would have liked a small gap between the top two pieces to allow for faster heat escape (device runs fine regardless of this without getting hot)
- May damage SD card on installation if not careful, be sure to remove SD card before inserting or removing Raspberry Pi. (not really a fault of the case as it's designed to hold the SD card once secured, I think many people just forget about the card)
Having used other cases before, I'd say this is definitely the best. Just what you'd expect from the official case!
