Hi everyone. Hey I’m working on a project and I need some help on hardware suggestions. And a disclosure I’m very inexperienced with this. So, I have a Pi 4b and I have a Hyperpixil 2 ¼”X3 ¾” touch screen display attached to it using the 40 pin GPIO header and what appears to be a 8mm stacking header with 14mm standoffs that came with the display.
So, I would like to add a fan and a battery to this project. The problem with a fan is that there isn’t enough room between the Pi and the display to fit one in and also all the fans I’ve seen are plugged into the 40 pin GPIO header and that isn’t available because of the display. Also it would be nice if the fan was controlled by a thermostat. What is the best solution here? Maybe a low profile fan and a taller stacking header and longer standoffs? I’ve searched and can’t seem to find a taller stacking header that says it’s for a Pi 4b and even if I could I don’t know how much I need with what fan, even if that’s the correct solution. Perhaps the fan could be plugged into a battery board, I don’t know if that is possible or not.
Any suggestions are appreciated, thanks.
