Many plus ones on this, I’ve had both the first gen of this case, and now the m.2 version, and both have been excellent. It’s both passive and active cooling, and the passive portion alone shaved 15 degrees C of my CPU temp.
There is a addon for the fan control, I’ll find the link when I get home tonight.
I can check this for you. I have a Razberry Board currently running in a Pi3, but can pop it over long enough to see if installing it in the case poses any problems
Boot time is much nicer on the SSD, and I find that everything seems snappier, like starting some of the larger add-ons for example.
Once you start logging a lot of sensor values the useful life of the SD Card starts falling off. Even with modern wear leveling, SD cards are not meant for anything remotely database.
If you have the recorder and history integrations disabled then it won’t be a problem, but otherwise the pain of resetting up after a SD Card is worth the 60-100 bucks (AU) for the longevity.
The Argon One case does come in a model without the m.2 base if you like, and the base can be bought separately if you change your mind later
