Hello, Mattia. Thank you very much for your suggest. We have consider that before.
As the accessories are well packaged in warehouse. and DIY Case we have total 3 colors, and heatsink / fan. If add:

  1. purple color + heatsink + fan , we shall add transparent and red color in additionally, then we have to add more 3 SKU.
  2. with metal plate or without, ×3 kinds of color
    If that, our SKU will be more and not easily for daily arrangement.

thank you

The case is good enough, except for one thing: both the case and the heat sink have screw threads. One of them shouldn’t have it in order to keep the heat sink/thermal pad under some pressure.

Poor VIM1 905x was feeling a bit neglected, as I pinched most the bits for the VIM2 monster
It was just a naked PCB, time for a a bit of Bling I feel.

As the Heat Sink was stuck on good I ultised the original Lid and Fan setup for now
Also slight reconfiguration to use New casing, I must say as much as I like the Coloured Cases,
I think the clear has that more Techo/Show off look that the coloured

So here we are in travel mode, plug it in and use it as is.


if we need to get to the GPIO for any reason pop the lid and all is easy to utilise
or can remove the cover, but for tone board, off with the LID.

Underneath, did not worry about steel plate, keeping the theme some clear feet.

Enjoy :smiley:

I recently purchased 5 cases for my Vims, along with 5 heatsinks. They look great and I love them, but one of the cases didn’t include a GPIO cover. Is there any way I could get one sent to me please?

Hello, I am taking in charge for this. I will message to you on aliexpress right now. Thank you and sorry for the mistake.

Used two cases and some VIM original case pieces to enclose the VIM2 + the mounted Tone board. I installed a few holes to help with ventilation. :slight_smile:

Hit a snag with the cutoff wheel and removed more material from the rear of the top section than I had intended. It is a thing like that, that caused me two order two of the clear cases to begin with.:rofl:

I will use different feet when I get some 40mm screws. The 45mm screws I’m using now are too long, I did not want to cut them.

hello

what temperature and best for vim2 max

speed fan 1, it is a 45 to 52 °, when I watch video or iptv.

I put small wedges to raise the lid, the hot air escapes better.!
