Looking for another way to keep your Raspberry Picool? Hook up Pimoroni’s miniature 5V FanSHIM and prevent your hard-working Pi from overheating! It’ll keep your Pi running at top performance and it’s stealthy-silent. The software will turn on the fan only when necessary, and has an RGB LED status indicator as well.
Pimoroni smartly designed the fan with a friction-fit header, so there’s no soldering required. It takes less than five minutes to mount the fan to the PCB using two screws. After that, just slip directly into your Raspberry Pi’s GPIO power pins for immediate cooling.
Please note: You do not need a fan for your Pi, as it will automatically adjust its speed to avoid overheating. The shim is designed for use cases where you want to run it at top speed for a long time, say during some Machine Learning, rendering, emulation, or video playback.
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
