NEW PRODUCTS – 13 x 13 x 3mm & 14 x 14 x 8mm Heat Sinks for Raspberry Pi 3


These heat sinks are made from high quality aluminum and will work perfectly with any Raspberry Pi but they are best paired with a Raspberry Pi 3 since it can run a little hot. They come with thermal adhesive already applied to the back making installation super easy. Clean the surface of the chip of any dust or grease then peel off the protective film and press the heat sink firmly onto the chip. You can use these heatsinks with any of our injection molded Adafruit Pi Enclosures, but it may not work with other enclosures and some HATs may not fit on top with the heat sink installed.

Note that you do not need a heatsink for the Pi 3, it will automatically adjust its speed to avoid overheating! It can also, of course, be used for other processors and chips.

Mini Aluminum Heat Sink for Raspberry Pi – 13 x 13 x 3mm

Looking for an ultra-thin heat sink for your Raspberry Pi 3? Check out this nice and slim 13x13x3mm Heat Sink!

We don’t have formal specs for this heat sink, but when we ran ‘stress -c 4’ on the Pi 3 to run all 4 CPUs, a heat-sink-less Pi quickly dropped down to 0.96 GHz to maintain thermal equilibrium. With this heat sink installed, it could run at 1.02 GHz (so, 6% higher performance). It’s a very minimal heatsink!

Aluminum Heat Sink for Raspberry Pi 3 – 14 x 14 x 8mm

Looking for a nice way to cool down your Raspberry Pi 3? Check out this 14x14x8 Heat Sink!

We don’t have formal specs for this heat sink, but when we ran ‘stress -c 4’ on the Pi 3 to run all 4 CPUs, a heat-sink-less Pi quickly dropped down to 0.96 GHz to maintain thermal equilibrium. With this heat sink installed, it could run at 1.1 GHz (so, approx 14% higher performance)
