Contents of the case are:
- Top left in anti static bag: IO daughter board
- Top middle in anti static bag: 4x short screws, 4x long screws, 2x cooling pads, 4x rubber feet.
- Top right in plastic protection: acrylic lid (base)
- Bottom right: alloy enclosure (top)
I like how the GPIO of the Pi is re-directed out to the back (where the USB network slots are). More on that later.

Great review TK ! From what I have read elsewhere the plastic base ensures wifi connectivity

Of course! For Wi-Fi. I am too focused in a complete shielding (and properly grounded) of the case, but in doing so will kill Wi-Fi as well. Be nice if they have an option for a metal bottom lid.
I believe the I need to install some packages for the fan to work. So far I think the passive cooling will do me good so will leave it for now.
I’m going to buy a second Argon one soon, will turn the fan on on the second one and then compare. Just looking for a seller with stock.
Also going to fire up the Pi and have a listen to see what needs tweaks work (or don’t). Stay tuned for a new article on that in the following weeks.
