Free Raspberry Pi 4 Stand, overclocking guide, and cooling case testing in The MagPi 90

By Lucy Hattersley. Posted

If you pick up the print edition of The MagPi issue 90 you'll find a free gift on the cover. A custom-built Raspberry Pi 4 Stand. This nifty stand is used to hold Raspberry Pi 4 devices vertically, enabling airflow to run around the ARM Cortex-A72 CPU.

It turns out that running a cool Raspberry Pi is very useful for overclocking. This month we've got a tutorial that shows you how to run Raspberry Pi at 2.0GHz and beyond. Plus! Keeping things cool is Gareth Halfacree, who tests out a range of cooling cases.

Please note: our free Raspberry Pi Stand is not given away with the digital edition. The file is available to 3D-print or laser-cut your own.

Build the ultimate Magic Mirror

When it comes to relatively easy Raspberry Pi projects, that produce impressive results, few are better than making a Magic Mirror.

Combine a stock Raspberry Pi touchscreen display with observation glass and a wooden frame, and you get an incredibly impressive mirror that displays information in white letters.

Our new Magic Mirror feature shows you how to build the device, and also use modules to add extra features such as voice control.
