Composition of Flirc Raspberry Pi case heatsink

Recommended Posts

I read in a review on Amazon that the heatsink/heat transfer post is hollow. Is this indeed the case?

Also, I've seen reference to a 3rd gen case, but the Amazon description states "gen2." What generation is the newest shipping version?

 

Thank you for your attention to this.

 

Regards,

The post is hollow, but this doesn't impede the heat transfer in any significant way. The post itself may have less heat capacity, than a solid block, but the whole case acts as a heat sink and heat spreader so the heat from the CPU is dissipated quickly enough.

no need for a third generation case. This case is compatible with the pi3 B+, has a new thermal pad to accommodate the height difference.
