GeekPi cooler w/ Sense HAT

Wed Jul 25, 2018 7:07 am

I am looking into buying a Sense HAT and the GeeekPi cpu cooler ( https://www.amazon.co.uk/GeeekPi-Heatsi ... P4973?th=1 ), but my question is, if i I have the cooler on, can I still fit a Sense HAT on the top?

Nope, not without using a stacking header from here: https://www.adafruit.com/product/1979 You may have to get a couple and stack them to clear the fan. Remember to use longer standoffs to secure the sensor hat to the RPi board.

Thx for the reply, but I have another question, which case should I buy if I want to fit the sense hat and the geeekpi cooler inside the case?
