New Cases for H2?

Unread post by bebop_man » Sun Jan 27, 2019 3:46 pm

I know the H2 is pretty new and the supply is constrained. I was lucky enough to get one this week, along with the Type 2 case, but I have to admit I'm not really happy with the case.

Does anyone know of any other cases that may be available now, or in the relatively near future? Something beyond the Type 1-4 models that are already out there?

I just realized I put this in the wrong sub-forum. If the mods could move this to the H2 forum, I'd appreciate it.

I think other manufacturers are creating metal cases already. The best option would be to contact manufacturers who have created cases for other boards in the past. For example I contacted kksb-cases.com. They are building a metal case for the H2. I think other manufacturers are on it, too.

I here share some pictures of the H2 case. In the late design phase stage but will share some pictures soon from the first prototype.

Here are some pictures from the CAD and the basic shapes. Most probably the case will be made of steel will be made steel. But the prototype will tell if it will be aluminum or steel.

We make space for one 2.5" SSD.

The fan will be located below the top surface. Walls in the case will have air vent features to make a good airflow.

Petty case. But not much space between the bottom of the board and the disk drive and likely very little airflow down there. With the RAM on the bottom it will get pretty hot down there - and with an NVMe drive installed it will cook.

Thanks, Good point. There is space between those components but with an improved airflow combined with more lower located cutouts in the bottom and bottom sides to pass the lower parts, it will make a mounted RAM cooler. We are adding those features for better performance.

You might want to look at the H2-to-mITX adapter that @boverby designed and posted about in this thread:

Is this case capable to support a 2,5" hard disk with height of 15mm? Any chance to made with support to two hard disks?

Hi,
I have some questions:
  • Why have you decided to make this shape instead of a cube?
  • Why didn't you increase the height in order to allow two HDD/SSD?
When I think about how a case should look like I have something like this in my mind (The sketch is an old one, but the idea is the same. I made it some time ago for a case for the Odroid-N2 which was canceled):

The prototype looks like this

It will look something like this, but the case for production will be slightly higher and wider.

The wait is over and the cases are ready to ship out!:)

Don't forget to include the odroid H2 Fan for better cooling.
