The Vertipie is powered by the world most famous SOC (System on a Chip) : the Raspberry Pi3b+.
To insure best operation and maximum life, the whole internals are cooled :
- Your build will be fully equipped with heatsinks : two on the Pi, one on the voltage regulator, one on the charging board.
- Two silent fans running at 5V. While the first one is pushing air from the front to the rear, the other one aspires the air and exhaust it to the rear. This constant air flow insures a perfect cooling for all the critical components of the Vertipie.
