Gather The Parts In Your Kit

Step 1

Clean the Raspberry Pi CPU and heatsink with isopropyl alcohol.

Step 2

Cut the thermal pad packaging.
Peel one side of the plastic.
Stick the thermal pad onto the CPU.
Peel the other side of the plastic.

Step 3

Press the hex nuts into the bottom plate.

Step 4

Put the Raspberry Pi onto the bottom plate. Align the corners. Then put the heatsink and top frame on the Raspberry Pi. Align corners.

Step 5

Put in the screws in from the top through the top frame all the way down. You might need to wiggle the screws a little to slide it in all the way through. Screw down the screws. Don’t over tighten. Screw down until there is no gap between the top frame, Raspberry Pi board and bottom plate.

Step 6

Insert the rear IO shield into the notches at a 45 degree angle. Push down and snap into place.

Step 7

Install the panels. Insert them to the notches at a 45 degree angle. Push down and snap into place. Make sure the matte surface face outward.

Step 8

Stick the rubber feet on to the bottom plate.

Step 9

Inspect each side to make sure everything looks right. Done!
