This is the DELUXE case for Pi 5.
Th case is made with a CNC process for our finest look.
The case is designed to have the top part contact the main chip and pull the heat away from the board.
For situations of heavy use when the passive cooling is not adequate, the case also features a 10,00 max RPM Built-in PWM fan with fan connector that connects directly to the fan port on the board and will automatically power on/off as needed as well as increase/decrease RPM based on the board temp.
Features:
  • Crafted with a CNC process for a Beautiful look
  • High-quality aluminum alloy anodized provides passive cooling via chip contact and includes thermal pad.
  • Built-in PWM fan with fan connector will automatically power on/off as needed as well as increase/decrease RPM based on the board temp.
  • Optional SD Card  Hole & GPIO Hole Covers.
  • Case Dimensions 3.80 x 2.5 x 1 Inches

 

Note:

This case contacts the main chip only as our testing has found that when using in this case it is not necessary to add additional heatsinks on the other chips.
 Customers who want to add additional heatsinks can add the Vilros 6 Piece Heatsink Set for Raspberry Pi 5 and add heatsinks to the 5 remaining chips.

sd cover but not power button?

Pros :
Easy to assemble
Came complete with all the installation parts
Good build quality

Cons:
No paper instructions (easy to find online)
Smells bad (yeah I smelled it, not a biggie)
Power "hole" (deal breaker if I only knew before buying). The power button of the board sits deep enough that my normal sized pinky finger can't even press it. If you're spending material for the worthless SD card cover then why not on an actual power button? There's no way for me to press this without using a stick or something. Couldn't you have just made the hole bigger? or recess it? Or I don't know just make an actual button? I'm like a chimp trying to get ants from an anthill here!

Nice case, for cooling, for looks, for DIN mounting.

Attractive & functional case for either desktop or DIN rail; screw spacing helped ease the latter.

Moved my RPi 5 from the stock red/white case to the Vilros Duo Deluxe. Two reasons: Wanted to DIN rail mount it, and prefer a less colorful case.

Stress testing barely runs the fan, it was never audible and the Pi never throttled over the 5 mins. It's not intended to run heavy loads anyway, and the passive cooling of the metal case helps.

As far as DIN railing, I used one of the many "RPi board" mounts. The case bottom cover is attached via two of the RPi's M2.5 board mount screws, so replacing them with 14mm length secured it nicely via holes intended for bare board mount.

Note the RPi DIN plate mount I purchased had integral standoffs with tiny holes for self-tapping screws, which collapsed when drilled out. In future I'll select units with separate standoffs, as the Vilros case feet give adequate vent spacing.
