Pi Holder Aluminum Case for Raspberry Pi (video)

Here’s a video showing you how to put together the Pi Holder! It’s a milled aluminum case that also doubles as a heatsink. On YouTube (please subscribe!) and Vimeo.


Pi Holder milled aluminum case for Raspberry Pi – This gorgeous and indestructible Raspberry Pi™ Case is as awesome as it is functional. Made in the U.S.A. by Barch Designs from Solid 6061-T6 Aircraft Grade Billet Aluminum which protects your Raspberry Pi from damage and also keeps your Pi running extra-cool by acting as a thermal heat sink (Please note: heat sinking is not required to use the Pi, but some people like having their Pi run cold).


The Pi Holder case is milled by Barch Designs on a CNC machine to exact tolerances. This allows just enough room for the Raspberry Pi to slide down into the case. Any bigger and the Pi would be loose and any smaller it would bind up.

Comes with the following:

  • Aluminum Bottom Half of a Pi Case
  • Aluminum Top Half of a Pi Case
  • Clear Plastic Piece
  • Insulating Neoprene Foam Rubber
  • 4 Screws
  • Allen Wrench
  • Thermal Paste Packet


Available with RasPi logo as well!
