The NEW Passive Cooling Silent Case for MiSTer FPGA DE10-NANO

This case design provides passive cooling through specially designed venting throughout the case. Large angled vents promote cooling through the lid, and on the back side, a large area of venting provides easy flow of air past the underside of the DE10.  The SDcard access was very important to me, so I designed the case so I could ease the plastic around this area to provide easy access to the card without the need of any tools at all.  Fingers are all that's needed to get the card out and put it back in.  If you're anything like me, I'm always trying new things and need to remove the card all the time.

The idea behind this case initially was to create a "silent" case that promoted cooling of the DE10-Nano, even during continuous operation.  The vents are plentiful on the bottom of the case.  The board is elevated above these vents to allow air to flow around the board leading to large air channels embedded into the long sides of the case.  These channels lead to the top of the case.  In the passive cooling design, large ventilation openings in the lid promote natural convection of air around the board out through the lid.  

Over a 24 hour period, through my testing, I found that the internal temperature (depending on where it's measured) ranged from 32 to 44 degrees Celsius.  The case itself never got beyond mildly warm.  So I'm pretty pleased with the design, and decided to share it with the world through the "magic" of ebay.

Take note, that you will receive the case and screws by purchasing this item.  You will NOT receive the DE10-Nano or any other equipment or hardware.  The DE10-Nano is only shown for illustrative purposes and is NOT included in the purchase price.
