It’s a fairly straightforward case for your Raspberry Pi. (Tested with Pi 3, and 3 B+)
A departure from the stereotypical SNES style cases for retro gaming.
Designed with the intent to reduce the footprint of the system, its has ample room
for small heatsinks and a 30mm x 30mm x 8mm fan. The system has plenty of
vents so heat is blown out through the top and side. The base is tall and hollow, as
to allow standard Micro USB charger and HDMI cords to fit.
The Nexus has a 32gb micro SD, and is run by a Raspberry Pi 3 B+. The OS is
Retropie 4.4 or above.(Retropie is running of Raspbian Stretch Lite) To be able to
run more power intensive games (PS1, N64, etc) I overclocked the Raspberry Pi
You will need a Bluetooth or USB Controller, along with a Keyboard and Mouse
to use Retropie
The Case is designed for ease of removal for the Micro SD card, for quick OS changes and updates.
WARNING: OVERCLOCKING YOUR PI CaN DESTROY IT AND VOID ANY
WARRANTY, DO SO AT YOUR OWN RISK! IF YOU DO, ACTIVE COOLING
IS A MUST!
Because you can just reprint the Pi Console Case, I simply super glued it together;
but if you wish, the base can be mounted to the case with M2 x 4mm screws. The Plate will still need to be glued though.
