I finally got one!! Does anyone know of the better screen can work with the pi zero? It wasn’t listed as an optional accessory, but I don’t see why it couldn’t work. I would’ve bought one with it if I knew for sure.
I think there might be an altercation that needs to be made to the board. I thought I remembered reading about it in another thread once. Im sure Kite can comment better on this.
Well remembered. I had put the possibility to support the HD LCD onto the CSL PCB, however I do not plan to support it all :) it will not work by just 'plugging it in' if that's what you were hoping!

@kite Is there a change-log for the Gem hardware? I see the LCD is different. What's the change there, or anything else?

There are no noticeable changes, that image is an older prototype that used a different screen (and I've not re-taken the photo).

Awesome got mine in! So glad you included the alternative option now for the backboard with a volume wheel instead of an hdmi port. I never used the hdmi anyway and changing the volume using the mode button is a pain! Anyway thanks Kite!

What buttons and silicone pads does everyone recommend also is there any STL's for brackets for the fan and power switch?



UPDATE: Found the STL's in the Design Sharing section.

the sword no longer comes with a fan, correct? also, since there's already a built in mini-hdmi port, why make the backboard with the additional hdmi port the default and not the one with the volume wheel?

The circuit sword still comes with a fan. It's the lite that you are thinking of that doesn't have a fan. And the HDMI is on the pi zero. No way you can access that when it's in a case.

The Circuit Sword (with CM3+) no longer comes with the fan. The discounted Circuit Sword (with CM3 (not the new + version)) still comes with the fan. Both come with a heatsink. Fan is no longer included (with CM3+) because that compute module+ has far better thermal characteristics. You can still buy the fan from aliexpress or otherwise (search for 30x30x3mm fan) if you wanted to add it anyway :)

The HDMI back board is included as standard and the analog wheel is optional. Just depends on your preference.

That's awesome! Passive cooling FTW.
Do you supply proper adhesive for the heatsink? Or have any recommendations? I know for a fact from another build that the tape that usually is thrown on the back of these heatsinks often have an insulating effect, making the pi hotter with the sink than without! :o :D
