Re: Overclocking CM3+ Lite

So, I have some follow-up on this... It looks like my issue might have been hardware related. I was having trouble tracking down a CM3+ Lite, so I ordered from two different sources. The second one finally came in and I decided to swap it out. Low and behold, I can now set arm_freq=1400 and everythi...

Re: First Build - Circuit Sword

Nice looking build! I know many dont like hot glue but it's saved me on more than once project with the ease of removal to move or even salvage parts when something didn't go as planned. Yeah, I personally went with epoxy because I was worried about it coming apart. (Which, now I don't think would ...

Re: CS Lite won't boot

I personally used J-B ClearWeld . Once it's set, it's not going anywhere. But, you can get yourself into lots of problems if you're not used to working with quick setting epoxy. Here's some recommendations: Don't even look at the epoxy until you're sure you can align the screen to your liking. Use s...

Re: Success with SD Card Overclock?

I thought the pi could only handle 64gb. Does the 128gb card work with the CS? Even when it’s completely full? And what is the reason you want to overclock the sd card, does this brings performance improvements? Sorry I can‘t help you with your question but maybe other people are interested to use ...

They work just fine with standard settings... but I wanted to overclock the Micro SD Card reader in my Circuit Sword to try and eek out some additional performance. So, I started fiddling with the following setting in my boot.conf...
