Got an email from Buyapi.ca today promoting their 30% off sale on their Raspberry Pi 4 budget kits with the promo code "Pi4BudgetKit-Promo"
https://www.buyapi.ca/product/raspberry ... le+-+Final
This is an awesome deal, because with the 30% sale, the kits (RPI4 board, case, power adapter, heatsinks) are cheaper than the RPI4 board by itself!

The budget kit comes with:
  1. The latest model of Raspberry Pi, the 4B with your choice of 1GB, 2GB, or 4GB of RAM
  2. Our very own HighPi case for Raspberry Pi 4
  3. USB-C Power Supply, 5.1V 3.0A, Black, UL Listed
  4. Aluminum Heatsink for Raspberry Pi 4B (3-Pack)
  5. Printed BuyaPi Raspberry Pi Quick Start Guide

Also another promo they are having is a free Official Raspberry Pi Guide ($15.95) with any Raspberry Pi 4 purchase using the promo code "FreePiGuide"

BTW, seems like the title and the table in your post are incorrect. The discount is not 40%, but 30%.
In the provided table, the listed sale price for the 4Gb kit is $69.97, but I see $79.05 in my cart.

>> ignore the bad math. discount is actually 30%.

99$ - 79$ is a 20$ discount. That is not 30%, it is 20%

Fixed title to be 30% off. Not sure why I typed in 40% off initially.

$79.05 is with $9.09 tax included for the 4GB kit. Back out the $9.09 and it is the correct $69.97 pre-tax price.

In some tests I've seen, with a heat sink and in the official RPI case, the temperature will rise to 73 degrees celcius, but not CPU throttle.
If you really need active cooling, there's tons of "RPI specific" fans on Amazon and eBay for $2. Wouldn't hurt to pick up a few.

+$11 shipping as well, though it's still a pretty good price if you're in the market for one.

They seem to have a couple of options on their website:
Fan shim (plug and play controllable fan): https://www.buyapi.ca/product/fan-shim- ... pberry-pi/ - $12
Simple 5V cooling fan: https://www.buyapi.ca/product/cooling-fan-5v/ - $4
--> can modify it yourself to control it with one of the GPOs on the Pi4 using a transistor: https://howchoo.com/g/ote2mjkzzta/contr ... ure-python

I'm running pihole on a 5$ raspberry pi zero and it runs smooth. It fills about 60,000 DNS queries a day for reference.

I need a pi zero, but never seen one at that price. :(
