DIY Case/Housing for VIMs


Hello, our DIY cases are at the manufacturing process, will be release in two weeks.
thank you for your notice!


I tested new cooling system on DIY case.


More VIm Fun

This time the case with DTV Fitted sorta

was a pity can’t plug Tone Board in by just removing 40 pin cover from lid
Just fit the lid of the old Vim and it can now plug In :wink:

Also clear base plate of vim, spaced with some 2/3mm nuts just for the look I guess :smiley:

Bit of a drill and fit a fan and away we go

Needed to improvise with Spacers to make it all sit and stick solid
I tried to utilize the built in nuts in the black part of vim case and thread bolts from both sides to hold, but nope too long or too short, spacing things out was looking better but still not happy, many variations tried before the final design.

Then the three became One :wink:

Bit of fun


Now I’m in the mold factory to check the 3000units(Transparent, Red and Purple each as 1K) DIY Case production process.



Heatsink looks very nice under glass.


But the benefit of it in this form is almost no, there is no air circulation.

It is necessary to make holes in the lid to ensure the movement of air. :wink:


Yes all Work in progress, more vents need
A new clear lid with fan cut out on opposite end to accommodate 40 pin header.

All this Only happens as I tried to fit all in one.
Current design new Vim case not really suited for Tone Board


Yes, good point, though the GPIO opening will still allow for a little ventilation.
In my own VIM, the fan is specifically setup to positively evacuate case air out the rear. I don’t have the new case yet, but will probably pickup one of the clear ones when they release.
My heatsink is on the way. :slight_smile:

It can be easy to crack when cutting…ask me how I know. :rofl:
