I've gotten a Raspberry Pi 2B as a gift, but without a case. I'm trying to buy me a case, but I mostly find Pi 3 cases being offered.

So, I'm asking the opposite of this question: Is the Raspberry Pi 2 Model B or B+ case compatible with the Raspberry Pi 3?

I understand that there might be some issue with the LEDs, so I should prefer a transparent case. Can I be sure there are no other incompatibilities?

The only significant physical difference in the positioning of the ACT/PWR LEDs.

I have cases with LED cutouts on both sides.


Yes, screw holes & dimensions are the same. I know this from experience.

  • "Yes", that is to say there won't be any issues other than the LED's location?
