Argon NEO Case with smaller GPIO based modules

Hey everyone,

This is just a quick post to carify some details about the Argon NEO case for the Raspberry Pi 4.
It’s a great case that provides a decent bit of heat dissipation and still gives access to the I/O ports on the Pi. It has left the GPIO pins open, as well as the CSI and DSI adapters. It also leaves access open to all the standard IO ports (USB, Ethernet, Micro HDMI, etc.)

We’ve had a few customers inquiring about certain modules (e.g. this RTC module) that fit onto the GPIO ports and still allow the lid of the case to be closed. We’ve found as long as the total height (headers and all) of the module is below 17mm it should fit with the lid on!

This is obviously subject to a couple of factors, so if you are unsure at all, pop a post up or reply to this post and we will do our best to get an answer!
