Heatsinks and Raspberry ShakeΒΆ

We often get the question, “Is there enough room between the Raspberry Shake (1D, 3D, 4D, etc.) to use heat sinks on my Raspberry Pi 2 / 3 Model B?”.

The answer is yes, if the heat sink is low profile. This heat sink, for example, would indeed fit over both the BROADCOM and SMSC chips on the 2 / 3 Model B: Digikey 1597-1046-ND.

See: https://www.digikey.com/products/en?keywords=1597-1046-ND.

The smaller of the two heat sinks (for the SMSC chip), will have to be offset a little to make room for the geophone wire connector.
