I purchased an inexpensive snap-together acrylic case for my Raspberry Pi from a seller on eBay. Overall I was happy with the case, but although this case has holes for passive air circulation I noticed that after running the Pi in the case that some of the chips were running a bit warm (even with heat sinks installed). Since this Pi will be running a web server 24/7, I decided to design a new top which accommodates a small (quiet and low air flow) cooling fan.
