Description
Case for Meegopad T2 PCB, 80x80x10 mm Fan, mini switch and wifi antenna This case solves the two major problems of this otherwise brilliant stick PC: 1) Overheating causing thermal shutdown 2) poor Wifi performance. Results: -Core temperatures always below 40°C -WiFi throughput ca 4x better than original -No noticeable fan noise (34 dBA at 0.5m instead of 33dBA in my office) Remarks V5: this is a major redesign after 4 units assembled which needs 4 parts less. Assembly is now much more convient: no more hassle with fan and fan guard alignement. There is also an additional opening for USB dongle for HID, so this can be exchanged without disassembly and opening he case. V6: Minor and hopefully final adjustments and tweeks V7: never say final - support rib adjusted
