Raspberry Pi case

For the past few weeks I've been playing with a couple of Raspberry Pi's. I bought two because I figured I'd end up finding something useful to do with the first one. This would immediately become an essential, irremovable part of my life, but I'd still want a second to play with. This has turned out to be the case, with the first one being setup as a PulseAudio network sink, hooked up to the stereo in the family room, allowing me to direct music from MPD between my study, media room and family room.

I opted for the bare-bones version of the Pi's, without cases. This eventually annoyed me, so I turned to ebay for help. Enter, Geekroo.com and their excellent Raspberry Pi case:

While there are plenty of other Raspberry Pi cases available online, the majority ship from overseas. I ordered mine last Saturday and it arrived Wednesday afternoon.

They've also started stocking copper heat-sinks for the Pi's, allowing you to make use of the recent Turbo Mode patch to clock your Pi up to 1GHz. Needless to say I was particularly interested in these and my new heat-sinks from Geekroo are already on their way to me - thanks Karl! He assures me that they'll soon be bundling the case and heat-sinks together, to make an excellent accessory pack.

So in summary, when you get sick of propping your Pi up on the cardboard box, drop by Geekroo.com, order one of their excellent cases and support an Australian business.
