How is recommending someone to overclock an already hot system going to help resolve overheating?
note- this is very minimal and stable, and should pretty much work with all pi3's.
You've already been told umpteen times by umpteen people that this is not true, so why do you keep insisting that it is?
That seriously risks scrambling the contents of any card not designed to run at that speed, ie, any ordinary Class-rated card. At the very least it'll either fail to boot or be very unstable.
This is by no means going to "pretty much work with all Pi3's" when many are already downclocking at stock clock speed with no overvolting and some are returning errors in certain stress tests at stock speed even with overvolting.
Code: Select all
This is entirely specific to every individual Pi3 and is by no means guaranteed to be stable on any even vaguely predictable percentage of them.
Code: Select all
Once again, more heat added to system temperature, so how does this address the issue in the thread title when it's guaranteed to have exactly the opposite effect?
Almost entirely irrelevant in terms of temperature.
Get yourself a good case with fan/heatsink, or just place a $5 fan on your existing case (with heatsinks) and connect it to the 5V GPIO 4/6 pins (or use an on/off fan run automation script), and you should be able to get below 80C with ease. (which is where throttling starts)
Unless you've stressed the GPU as well simultaneously, expect to add up to another 15C on top of that. Have you stress tested with a simultaneous heavy GPU load yet? If not, you have no way of even knowing if it's stable, let alone how much further down it will push the CPU clock.
Then I just ran CPUBurn for an hour, and temps stayed below 85C using a fan only .
So with no GPU load at all, it's throttling back already even with a hoofing great fan on it, partly due to the overcolck. AAAARRRGGH!
Overclocking recommendations have a place, but that place in NOT in a thread specifically relating to devices already suffering overheating issues.
