I’m looking to make a mini media/game streaming box and I’d like it to fit in the official Raspberry Pi 3 case. I’ve been trying to decide between using the Asus Tinker Board and the Rock Pi 4. I was wondering how well the Rock Pi 4 will fit in current Raspberry Pi 3 cases? I have two concerns with using the case though. The Rock Pi 4 has a USB-C connector while the Raspberry Pi 3 case is meant for a microUSB connector. Would a USB-C connector fit in a micro USB slot in the case? And also, I noticed the SoC is underneath the board meaning any kind of heatsink most likely won’t be able to be used. So in that case, if I have to do that, would it be alright if I used the Rock Pi 4 without a heatsink? What kind of throttling should I expect as in how bad of a performance hit would I be looking at?
EDIT: Also just noticed the Rock Pi 4 has a PCIe connector on the bottom. I’m not sure how much extra space there is at the bottom of the RPi case, doesn’t look like much so I’m not sure if the Rock Pi 4 would be able to fit in that either.
