Fitting the new Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ into the Little Bird Premium Case
Author: Robert Date Posted:11 April 2018
Hey gang, We asked Rob to put together a small video showing the very annoying but necessary steps to get the new Raspberry Pi B+ into the shiny premium case supplied with our complete starter kits
Heatsink and PoEBy: Shaun on 13 April 2018This case was made for the 3B, not the 3B+. The lan controller chip does not align with it's hole and so you cannot use a heat-sink. It also does not have a hole for the PoE connector. I was sent a replacement case (without delay, good service) but with a whole manually drilled out. It doesn't look nice IMHO, but some might not mind. Great case for the older B3. Little Bird staff have been very helpful so far.
Heatsink misalignmentBy: Ross on 12 April 2018I appreciate that there has been a hole drilled for the POE pins but unfortunately the hole for the smaller heatsink still doesn't line up meaning that you can't use this case with the 3B+ and have the heatsink on. The case itself looks lovely but until this is sorted I don't think selling them in the 3B+ starter package is good.
