KKSB Khadas VIM4 Heatsink Case - Machined Aluminium Passive Cooled Case
The KKSB Khadas VIM4 Heatsink Case is a reliable solution for those looking to keep their VIM4 processor cool and running smoothly. Made from CNC-machined aluminum, this Khadas VIM4 enclosure is designed to dissipate heat effectively and keep your processor running at optimal temperatures.
Note that this model has upgraded thermal pads with higher thermal conductivity, unlike the lower-grade conductivity pads in the first production batch.
On top of the case, there is an opening for the GPIO header, making it easy to access and use your VIM4's GPIO pins. This case is specifically designed to fit the Khadas VIM4, and comes with labelled cutouts for all of the VIM4's interfaces and connectors. It ensures a perfect fit and easy access to all connectors and interfaces. This KKSB Khadas VIM4 Black Case comes with push buttons for Function, Reset, and Power.
The KKSB Khadas VIM4 Aluminium Heatsink Case is a passive cooling solution, meaning it does not require a fan to dissipate heat. The case itself acts as a heatsink, with a thermal pad connecting the lid to the processor. The fins on top of the case increase the surface area, allowing for more efficient heat dissipation.
This case does not have space for a fan. It does not support active cooling.
Suitable for Different Settings
The KKSB Khadas VIM4 protective case comes with 4 rubber feet for stable, scratch-free desktop orientation, as well as two pre-cut mounting holes for wall mounting.
The KKSB Khadas VIM4 Heatsink Case is ideal for a wide range of applications, including:
- Home automation: Use the VIM4 to control lights, appliances, and other devices around your home.
- Media centers: Use the VIM4 to build a powerful media center for streaming movies, TV shows, and music.
- Robotics: Use the VIM4 to control robots, drones, and other DIY projects.
- Industrial control: Use the VIM4 to control industrial equipment, machines, and other automated systems.
- Internet of things: Use the VIM4 to connect to the internet and control devices remotely, or to collect and transmit data.
In conclusion, the KKSB Khadas VIM4 Heatsink Case is an efficient solution for keeping your VIM4 processor cool and running smoothly. With its passive cooling design, compatibility with the Khadas VIM4, and various features such as push buttons and GPIO header opening, this case is a great choice for anyone looking to build a powerful and reliable microcontroller-based project.

Khadas VIM4 is NOT included.
Overall, the case is awesome, nice design, good materials. However, I’m a bit disappointed with thermal pad. With this pad the board idle temperature is 60C and 80+ under 100% load. I’ve changed this to a copper thermal pad with good thermal paste. With this setup idle temperature is 45C. I suggest you changing the thermal pad you provide now with something better (e.g., something like my setup).
KKSB Khadas VIM4 Aluminium Case – Black
Solid case for the VIM4, sadly doesn't support the heatsink/fan that came with the unit but that makes sense. Gets a little toasty under load, but nothing that is dangerous or impacts performance.
