Thu Mar 22, 2018 9:40 pm

Hi, There aren't many cases out yet for the RPI 3 Model B+ so i'm thinking of buying a case that was designed for the RPI 3 Model B and use it for the B+.The case in question is an KKSB Aluminium Case for the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B https://www.kksb-cases.com/kksb-raspber ... minum.html Will the case be compatible with The Raspberry Pi 3 model B+ as well?

In the Blog it stated the Official Case is compatible: https://www.raspberrypi.org/products/ra ... pi-3-case/

I bought a case for my 3B+ that said it was compatible with 3B and 3B+, but I had to grind away some of the plastic of the case to get it to fit properly due to components on the board that interfered with the case. the Case I bought was one of those that are 6 layers of plastic that stack with a fan. It worked fine after the cutting of plastic.

Similar to StuporDave,

I only have 2 Pi3 cases (both originally bought for the 3b), one has no issues ( a Flirc ) the other supplied with my retropie kit would need a little cosmetic work before I try to put the 3b+ into it. The PoE headers interfere with that case (grind down the obstructing plastic or cut of the headers). I stress neither case was advertised as being 3b+ compatible.

I have this case and can confirm that it fits perfectly. I have my Raspberry Pi 3 B+ inside of it as I type.

Comes in Blue, Black, Red, or Clear and has a spot for a fan.
There are various other websites around the net selling this exact case too.

will it be compatible with the PoE hat as well ?

if this is the case, i would recommend to have another cover that has a fan hole (and another one for the camera in the same style as for Pi zero)

If you have LEGO lying around then you could build a case.

This is my latest, housing a 3 B+

Looking at the link, that case should fit a Raspberry Pi 3b+ no problem, but it will not fit a Pi b+
