I may try one of these cases for one of my 6 Rpi...... Where do the heatsinks go and how do they attach?
They attach via adhesive backing. Two protect the Broadcomm 2837 processor and SMSC LAN9514 chip on the top side of board and one on the Elpida memory chip on the underside.
Click here for some pics of them. There are images of both top and bottom sections that are zoomable.
edit: I think I discovered part of the reason for the modular layered design. You can begin with a standard case and add the "Top Hat" functionality later.
The reason for the Layered design probably has to do with the problem of connecting the sides. The case I have has slots to attach the side pieces and top and bottom..... But by using layers, they can just stack them up and use the 4 screws....So that makes sense....
Sound wise I am very pleased with my Rpi and like the additional Functionality of PiCorePlayer gives to the Player. Looking forward to your review or your RPi in your Main System.
