Re: Pi 3 is Destroying SD Cards

It doesn't sound too unreasonable the RPI 3 destroys SD cards. The RPI 3 can get much hotter than most SD's cards operational temperature range; for example check out SanDisk and Samsung specifications. Both list the maximum operational temperature as 85 degrees Celsius. If you check the thermal ima...

Re: Raspberry Pi 3 thermal/SD card woes

I hope you noted that Rive's Pi is overclocked with extra voltage added. That said, there seems to be is a real stability problem with some Pi 3s under stressful loads. Get a heatsink and reduce clockspeed if necessary. Or return the board. I did not notice the overclock and overvolt, thank you for...

Re: Raspberry Pi 3 thermal/SD card woes

I did a test on it today (official pi3 case with just a heatsink, and it overheats and tries to throttle like crazy...and this is with the official case open on top and on the side). Imagine what happens with the case closed up. Okay, that makes it official the RPI 3 is badly designed with little t...

Re: Raspberry Pi 3 thermal/SD card woes

The Pi3 has been pushed to the edge of it's manufacturing limitations. I'd say over the edge. The stock configuration can't handle compiling stuff on one core. But thanks for the input, I've ordered both the official PSU and the official heatsink. If it still crashes after that I'm getting the boar...

Re: Raspberry Pi 3 thermal/SD card woes

You will need a 2.5 amp PSU... a 2 amp supply is insufficient. <sorry> edit: PS start over... get a new noobs card (16 Gb or more) and start clean... The RPI 3 uses up to 800 mA and there are no attached USB devices except for keyboard and a mouse. Starting over didn't help, I'm using the latest Ra...

Raspberry Pi 3 thermal/SD card woes

Hi. I have a Raspberry Pi 3 and an official Raspberry Pi 3 case. I'm using a Samsung Evo SD card along with it and a 2 amp PSU. I'm trying to compile OpenWrt on it, but after a while it will either hang with a yellow square in the top right or the access to the SD card will fail with a lot of errors...

Re: MATE for Raspbian

Thank you so much for this, this is way better than LXDE. I think it works pretty decently on the 256MB model.

Re: raspberry pi foundation raspbian image

Installation went fine. Performance is notably better in DosBox :) One thing that doesn't work for me is omxplayer. It recognizes the files properly but doesn't show the video. On the 'Video codec omx-h264...' line it now says 'profile 100' no matter which file I try. I remember that with the offici...
