Cooler Master has torn through the funding target of its new Raspberry Pi case, the Pi Case 40. Apparently offering better cooling performance than "any other passively cooled Pi case on the market", the Pi Case 40 retails for just €23 (~US$27).

Cooler Master has brought a Raspberry Pi case to Kickstarter, the popular crowdfunding platform. Designed for the Raspberry Pi 4, the Pi Case 40 reached its funding target in 1 hour and has already garnered more than 4x its campaign target.

According to Cooler Master, the Pi Case 40 "sports a unique features set", which comprises of an aluminium shell, a TPU bumper, a remappable power button and access to your Pi's GPIO pins. Cooler Master has also included a slit in the TPU bumper for routing camera and display cables. Additionally, the company claims that it has paid attention to Bluetooth and Wi-Fi reception. It explains that:

The lower panel is raised higher in proximity of the antennas and it locks to the aluminium core at an angle, thus preventing signal losses.

Cooler Master also claims that the case's solid block of aluminium allows it to have a "higher heat soaking capacity than any other similar solution". Furthermore, the Pi Case 40 apparently allows the Raspberry Pi 4 to run at full load for longer than "any other passively cooled Pi case on the market".

Setting those claims aside, ETA Prime has also published a hands-on video of the Cooler Master Pi Case 40. We have embedded the video below. The Pi Case 40 is available to order for €23, which equates to around US$27. Cooler Master hopes to deliver orders to backers in September 2020 and will include 4x VESA/Wall mounts with every order.
