When I first used 7TCN chips with the v2.5 memory modules, I did test internal air temperatures in the small range of cases available at time, it was during the time I began prototyping the acrylic case I sell. I even went to the point of stress testing inside an acrylic box, with no heatsink or fan on the DE10 Nano, all then wrapped tight in a polythene bag! I did not experience any issues at all with my stress testing setup so a passively cooled case from MisterAddons would even with 30C ambient air surprise me if it got anywhere close to that high of an internal air temperature.

It's not my intention to hijack this thread but I just wanted to share my experience with misterfpga.co.uk. A few weeks ago, I ordered a USB hub/board, a 128MB RAM module, an acrylic case (full enclosure), and a few other small parts.

Case: looks gorgeous, easy to assemble; took 30 seconds (and I'm a clumsy person)
USB hub: has its own DC barrel jack, so no issues with peripherals that draw more power than usual
RAM module: all Jotego cores work flawlessly. No errors when running the memory tests from Jotego

Service: A+++: very fast response, very fast shipping.

If you want a hassle-free experience and high quality products, look no further. Highly recommended!

I would say that post is as far away from hijacking the tread as is possible!

I have completed another small batch of the mt32-pi HATs, just an update for those who messaged me and were waiting for one.

Nat stop tempting me! I've sworn off Mister purchases until the mistercade becomes available >.<

All OLED colour versions of the MT32-Pi HATs are available again, I know a few of you were waiting on the blue and white versions.

I would like to chime in and also give praise to Nat.
I already owned the DE-10 Nano and a 128 MB RAM expansion prior to ordering from him.
Recently I ordered a proper power supply, MT32pi hat, Analog IO Board with a Noctua fan, copper heat sink, and an in-line power switch from this site and they were shipped to the states promptly, well packed, and all work great. I just placed an order again today for a USB hub PCB and an enclosed acrylic case. Looking forward to getting those to finish off my MiSTer build! I have nothing but good things to say about ordering parts from here. Thanks Nat!

Hi Nat. Got the Mt32 today but I’m baffled regarding using the stand offs and screws that were included to attach it to my Pi3b, I’m obviously doing something wrong. Any chance you can help me? Or anyone. Much obliged.

Your probably not doing anything wrong, the provided standoffs are an alternate standoff size for Raspberry Pi cases which use M2.5 sized threads.

The way I supply the mt32-pi HAT is with the intention of it sitting directly on top a Raspberry Pi 3 A+ using the recommended case, which is the Geekworm / UGeek aluminium case. More details here in the Wiki:

Recommended mt32-pi Case

Due to the large number of possible configurations, such as different case types and Raspberry Pi models, it is really not possible for me to offer an off the shelf mounting kit which would suit each users setup, I just include the alternate M2.5 size set of screws, nuts and standoffs for use on other RPi cases which require M2.5 sized threads, a useful tip is the black M2.5 standoffs are nylon, and this allows for them to be easily cut with a sharp knife to any required length for neatness when fitting.

If you are mounting on a bare RPi board, you may have to source additional mounting hardware to fit your configuration.
