Re: Dual fan and heatsink problems

Passive cooling aluminum case? Fan was nice idea when there were no these aluminum cases with direct contact passive cooling. One on my signature cost around 11 dollars, of course recommended to buy thermal tape or thermal pad thickness around 0.3mm to 0.5mm with it, thermal paste alone doesn't take...

Re: Tutorial: Compile VLC with HW acceleration - Stretch, RPi 2/3

Do we still have to compile it by ourselves to get HW acceleration or will the version from the Raspbian repo include GPU acceleration? I'm pretty sure we still need compile it to get HW acceleration, I'm going try it later as I get more time. Indeed the 3.0.x branch will contain the last releases ...

Re: Bad SD card

Never, ever buy cheap unknown chinese brands.

Samsung, sandisk and Kingston most used SD cards, maybe you try one of them next time, of course try find shop close to you, and not fake cards.

Don't promote cheap unknown chinese sd cards, please.

I believe fkms is fixed in latest update (4.14.17). If you use this then please give it a test and report here.
I expect we'll be pushing 4.14 to default (master) branch of rpi-update this week.
Very good news :)

ESR 52.9 will be last version for 52.x ESR, then comes 60.x ESR. I hope it works with RPi 3 (drop support for Windows XP atleast, maybe also Vista + legacy add-ons)

Re: Firefox 58 on Raspbian Jessie?

Chromium is better IMO, but new version updates for RPi repo is very rare to see. Chromium V51 > V56 > V60 > V6x (5)? Edit: Firefox (ESR) has better settings to reduce memory usage, that point would be better for Raspberry Pi. During my small "test", noticed biggest difference on Youtube page loadin...

Just go for cheap aluminum case, cost around 10 dollars. More effective and less noise :D

And if you use WiFi, recommended to use adapter with aluminum case.

Re: Rpi 3 perfomance improvements

Small tweaking is always possible (with not certain performance increase), but in general RPi 3 hardware is very limited.
