Yes. Had it running on a 256mb board over varying periods. Got a new 512mb board yesterday, and popped it on their. So been running for 23.5hrs, now. I run headerless, so graphics memory is set to 16mb or 32mb(cant remember which, but certainly no more than 32mb), and i have raspcontrol and owncloud...

Re: CPU load vs. Turbo mode

Afaik the RPi only has two speeds, the 'non turbo' and the turbo. When the trigger is reached it enters turbo mode, so having a low non turbo will kick turbo in with little effort. So, essentially IT IS better to set a low idling speed via the config.txt file rather than doing the following: I have...

Re: CPU load vs. Turbo mode

So, Ive set my cpu to idle at 300MHz and discussed the merits of this on the forum. However, 1 thing that I noticed is that doing something simple like rescanning the file system in an ownCloud installation causes the cpu to almost instantly jump upto the overclocking speed. With no discernible step...

True but a fast card would help reduce the risk. And how are we so sure the plug pulling is the cause????

Re: why idle at 700mhz ???

Underclocking is in effect reducing the idling speed, so that would give you some idea of the power saving to be gained. I don't think it's that much tbh. The GPU already does lots of power saving by reducing clock frequency and turning off unused HW blocks. Ah ok, i get the relevance now, sorry. T...

Thanks for the response but that thread appears to be about underclocking and under volting, rather than reducing the idling speed.

Hi, It recently occurred to me that excluding turbo mode the pi runs at a constant 700mhz even when idle. This got me wondering why the idle speed isnt lower, especially considering how the pis low power consumption seems to be one of its main selling points. Now i can see the '[email protected] the polar icecap...

Re: New Case

Ethernet

Optional 1 usb port


Nothing else needed for me, and i guess a lot of others who run headless.

A nice little click closable flap over the gpio would be handy i imagine.

Re: How to make Raspbian read only?

I strongly suggest good quality SD cards. I never shutdown my pi properly, i just pull the plug and Ive never had a corruption issue. So, that would make me think your pulling of the plug is coincidental to your corrupt data issue. I cross the road outside my house without looking every day, and I'...
