Hey Tom,

They can be found on the product page of the Pi 5 under the recommended essentials heading in the description. I will link both the Official Power Supply and the Active Cooler for you here though as well.



Hello, when are you looking at getting more Raspberry Pi 5’s in? Thank you


In the global announcement, Eben Upton said stock would be available later in October. Perhaps click the signup link on the product page for now.


Hi All,

I’ve been watching some of the Raspberry Pi 5 design and in-depth videos, I was super interested about the RP-ONE video and case design video.

Would be keen to hear if the case is compatible with the 4, might make for some easy cluster computing!


Is there an eta for when rasp pi 5 will be back on stock?

Hi @Molly258827

Not yet unfortunately, Core Electronics isn’t taking backorders just yet (as of the 16th of October), although we’ll be sending out emails to those on the Signup to get Notified list first with the ETA once confirmed for each of the boards and accessories:

Hi Joel and Vaughan,

You’ll need to select the Barebones kit here: Raspberry Pi 5 8GB - Barebones Kit | Core Electronics Australia

Cannot add raspi 5 to shopping cart. Showi g out of stock. Just got an email that it is

Thanks Liam
Sadly the kit includes a Pi 4 power supply - which does not deliver the full required wattage for when Pi is under load.
Can you separate the Pi 5 from the kit and sell just as SBC?
I’m a long time customer with Core and would appreciate not buying a power supply that I don’t need and won’t use.

Hi Vaughan,

Unfortunately the new power supply hasnt passed Australian certification yet so in an effort Core is selling it in a minimal kit. When connected it ought to not limit the CPU but only the USB power output (fine if you arent running NVMe SSDs or power hungry HATs).

On the product page there are mentions of the single boards being available sometime early next year.

Re: in stock, I messaged Core one day and there is some caching, the kits might be in stock though
