The recent Raspberry Pi 4 has certainly made waves in the Pi-Making community due to the almost excessive computing power that it offers. However, even the most powerful of single board computers are not immune to damage, and this is why always recommend getting yourself a reliable Pi Enclosure to keep your Pi safe from unexpected harm, so that it can continue to provide that awesome level of functionality that you love so much – but without the risk of damage from bumps, knocks, drops or other common mistakes.

With that being said, we would like to introduce The Argon ONE - Aluminium Case for Raspberry Pi 4, which is a beautifully-designed and well-crafted Pi case made for the more recent Raspberry Pi 4 Boards, and is made from durable aluminium with handy cutouts and spacing for all the cabling, wires, FFC strips and other connection you need. These handy features make it more than just a highly protective and aesthetically striking case, but also a very functional case, as it even has a magnetic lid that can be removed to reveal the 40-Pin GPIO below, with a really helpful silkscreen pinout, printed directly onto case to make pin identification and utilisation as easy as possible – while still keeping everything as safe as can be.

In addition to features that are based around convenience and ease-of-use, the Argon ONE also offers some valuable (and tangible) benefits too, as it comes with a tiny but effective active cooling fan, built-in heatsinking for additional passive cooling, as well as onboard temperature control to boost fan speed instead of throttling the power. Furthermore, it also comes with a really useful port-extender board as well, and this board plugs directly into the Raspberry Pi via the HDMI and Audio ports, which can then assist with mounting and sturdiness, while extending those ports to the front of the case as well. This means that all of the ports you need will all be placed directly on the front of the Argon ONE, with the GPIO header easily accessible – and no additional wiring at all aside from the basic 2-wire fan connector.

After playing with this super cool Argon ONE Raspberry Pi Case, we must admit that there is nothing about the case that we would want to change. From the aesthetics to the material choice, as well as all of the extras that were clearly designed with some genuine insight, we love every aspect about this beautiful, sleek and extremely robust Pi Protector.
