    Needed a case to house my Pi as well as my Saintsmart HIFI DAC audio expansion board.

    Found nothing that matched, so ended up using this one:-
    http://www.modmypi.com/raspberry-pi/cases/din-rail-mount/italtronic-din-rail-raspberry-pi-model-b-plus-case/?limit=100

    Three extra holes, and I have a case that is din rail mountable (already have in main control box :D), and looks cool (I am an electrician, opinions may vary)

    Now on to fixing my star, birds have torn holes in the plastic sleeving of the strip with their claws, causing water damage just after Christmas. Might have to use some clear poly pipe to reinforce the sections where a bird would land/roost.

    Later,

    Definitely not my cheapest option, but just loved the look.

    Case was about $14AU and postage about the same. I say about because I got two other cases and some accessories with it.

    Cheers,

    I got a few of those last year. The DIN rail part is a little finicky and doesn't fit all brands of rail.
