Re: Heatsink on the LAN Chip

I still prefer my main RPi 3B+ setting over that earlier cheap passive aluminum case: Akasa aluminum case, during installation of large sticky thermal pad to bottom, I included 0.3mm thick copper shim (bought x5 set from banggood) with it, even without copper shim it hit to bottom plate, so now ther...

Re: Heatsink on the LAN Chip

This case will keep your 3B+ model cool, thermal tape / pads are recommended to use with case, thickness of 0.15mm somewhat thin, bad to none contact (0.25 - 0.5mm takes contact, differences comes with pressure), I got 2 of these cases just 2 days ago (bought from banggood), used Akasa thermal tape ...

Re: New Raspberry Pi model 3B+ 1.4 GHz, 330Mbit Ethernet, 802.11ac, PoE

The board layout is identical to the 3B apart from the four extra POE pins. Ethernet moved, reason why fanless case from my signature isn't supported. Leaves empty spot. For example, this is supported ofc, all is needed is right dimensions, nothing else: http://www.akasa.com.tw/update.php?tpl=produ...

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: 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.

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.
