The Raspberry Pi is an absolutely incredible little computing machine. Powered by Linux, if there's an idea that you can think of, chances are, you'll be able to use a Raspberry Pi to get it done. But there will be times when you need to find the best Raspberry Pi cases, especially if you don't want to use the ones included with the best Raspberry Pi kits. We've rounded up some of our favorites, but really, there are so many great options at your disposal.

Best Raspberry Pi 4 Cases

The Raspberry Pi 4 is the newest standalone board to be released, making it the obvious first choice for everyone. But once you've acquired the board, you might want to start looking at some different cases, and thankfully, there are plenty of options to choose from. Ranging from just having a basic case or using one that provides the ability to add an NVME M.2 SSD to your Pi, there's something here for everyone.

Best Raspberry Pi 3B+ Cases

The Raspberry Pi 3B+ continues to be one of the most popular boards, despite being released a few years ago and superseded by the Pi 4. However, if you already have a Pi 3B+ and want to upgrade to a newer case, we've got you covered with some pretty great options.

Best Raspberry Pi Zero and Pi Zero W Cases

The Raspberry Pi Zero and Pi Zero W are the smallest Pi boards available. This makes these boards perfect for those projects that you don't need physical access to, but it also means that they are a bit more susceptible to accidental damage. To ensure that doesn't happen to your Pi Zero, grab one of these cases.

Best Universal Raspberry Pi Cases

There aren't too many differences between the different Raspberry Pi boards, but there are enough to warrant different cases to be available. However, some companies have provided all-in-one solutions that allow you to use practically any Raspberry Pi board that has been released, and we've rounded up some of our favorites.

Get the best Raspberry Pi cases for your needs

If you're looking for a no-nonsense and no-frills case that looks sleek, then the Flirc Raspberry Pi 4 case is the way to go. This case is made from aluminum and includes a built-in heat sink, while providing quick and easy access to the GPIO and other available connectors. Plus, there's a non-slip bottom, so you won't have to worry about your Raspberry Pi 4 accidentally falling off the desk or table.

Turning to those who use the Raspberry Pi 3B+, this may not be the newest Raspberry Pi model available, but it still works quite well. In that event, you're going to want a case that works just as well as the Pi that it's protecting, and that's where the iUniker ABS case comes in. You'll be equipped with a solid and sturdy case, featuring a rather large cutout at the top to accommodate the included 30mm Quiet Cooling Fan. And that top part of the case is easily removable if you need to get to the GPIO or one of the other connectors on your board.
