Just because your PC is mini doesn’t mean it can’t go big on its looks. If you want your Raspberry Pi 3 to look its absolute best, you can pick up a case for a cheap price. They’re not just for looks, either; they also protect the unit and can sometimes feature ventilation to keep things cool.
Here are the best Raspberry Pi 3 cases you can get.
The Raspberry Pi 3 can get a bit toasty if you’re gaming, Photoshopping or doing other strenuous activities. The FLIRC case resolves this by being a great heatsink made out of aluminium core. It looks very nice too with its minimal silvery design – perfect to prop next to your living room TV as a media center.
