Here’s the I/O daughter board. The role of this is just to redirect the I/O from the sides of the Pi to the rear of the ArgonOne case.
Gold plated stereo jack. The quality of this board is prety decent. Everything looks nicely done and well reinforced. Should function well.
Here’s the connection of the daughter board to the Pi4. Pretty straightforward connection. No loose/movable bits as far as I can tell.
Everything should be secure and strong once the boards are fitted and secured inside the Argon case.

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.
