Fan for RemotePi Board for Pi 4


Fan for RemotePi Board for Pi 4

Our shop is now closed, please see more information here.


Unlike earlier Raspberry Pi versions, the new Raspberry Pi 4B benefits from active cooling for CPU intensive tasks, to avoid CPU throttling and performance degradation.

From our testing this fan reduces the CPU temperature to about 64 degrees Celsius (ambient temperature 24 deg. Celsius) even under extreme CPU load conditions, preventing CPU throttling, which else kicks in at 80 deg. without active cooling.

This nearly silent fan can be connected to the RemotePi Board for Pi 4 or the RemotePi Board for Pi 4 (external IR and LED). These versions of the RemotePi Boards have a matching socket on board to plug in this optional fan.

The fan comes with four M2.5 x 12 mm nylon screws and nuts for mounting. We also include a 14 x 14 x 6 mm aluminium heatsink for the Raspberry Pi 4 SoC.
