I wondered if current batches of 3B+ better than previous?
I put a heat sink on any major chip on the Pi 3B+.
Just a heat sink.
The CPU got the largest one (about 1/2"). 2 more smaller sinks on the top of the board, and one sink on the bottom.
My current OC settings are:
And it runs fine.
Code: Select all
arm_freq=1500 sdram_freq=525 gpu_freq=400 over_voltage=1
Running a CPU benchmark utility, with 4 cores at 100% gets the CPU running at 80C after about 5 minutes, and doesn't really go much beyond that.
The CPU ran fine to 1500Mhz with zero overclock voltage adjustment (voltage read ~ 1,24??V). I just added over_voltage to '1' for stability, measuring now at 1.2688V.
It seems to run stable.
Are these values normal?
I don't really do a lot of heavy CPU taxing. Mostly just coding, so my CPU runs stock at 60C, and at 1500Mhz at 64C at nearly idle (<10% load with browser open).
The 1500Mhz makes it a bit more snappy, as the Pi 3B+ feels a little sluggish.
