Pi 5 needs only one upgrade, please

Wed Jul 03, 2019 2:48 pm

Fan pins. All these extras on the 3b+ and now the 4 and all I really wanted was an extra pair of pins (5v/gnd) to plug a doggone fan into without losing the ability to plug a standard 40 pin cable into my GPIO header.

I am pretty sure they would not add an extra power pair of pin even for RPi3.. Mainly because it is quite pointless, you could connect the fan to the existing gpio by other methods like hacking the cable a little

Hope it runs (which it wont)
