  1. What version number do you have Its the little text at the bottom of the case on the right hand side between the two barcodes i seen two 0702 and 0710 0702 had the bottom as one big heatsink 0710 has 3 small heatsinks and a bottom filled with holes Also seems the capacitor is different in both. I also noticed that the board does not stay powered when only the USB console cable is plugged in (V5 and earlier V7 would both show power but not actually boot. ) so they must have re-done some power stuff on the new b
  2. Something else that kinda seems interesting.... im sitting in a MARVEL>> uboot prompt and its not rebooting. its been an hour now.
  3. So im waiting for the correct capacitor to arrive (470uF 16V 108C) but i tried booting the board up without it (since it was really just a filter anyway) and same thing happend. Tried also with a 470uF 25V 85C jammed in and it still rebooted So it doesn't look like this will work :/ EC1 is off the 12v rail left most column.
  4. I tried to place the bin in the fridge to bring the overall temperature down and then try boot it up. This did not seem to help at all and the reboot happened before even the kernel fully initialized. Im worried this is not my issue, i wish there was a way to confirm it. But Im willing to try to replace the capacitor but it seems to be a not-so-easy replacement. Any tips?
  5. My V7 came in working fine Then over time i hit these ranadom reboots Tried slower bootloaders and latest armbian with no luck/ One interesting thing i found is after not touching it for several months, i t started up and worked ok. I got it to boot, go into the OS and then after a few mins it reset again. The time its stayed up seemed to be growing shorter and shorter. I left it unplugged over night and tried powering it up in the morning and it will not even get through INIT sequence to a console prompt. 470uf/16V SEEMS fine (no evidence of l
  6. Seems my espressoBin started randomly rebooting. sometimes it does it while sitting in a u boot prompt other times it will do it while bootting the os Any suggestions? anyone seen this before? Tried updateing uboot with no luck

  8. *BUMP* anyone know anyway of fixing this less re-compiling the kernel?
  9. Yep very true! Understood. The board in question is build for the LibraRouter project. So far the test I seen the tests are incredible! $35 for board + 12dbi directional antenna! If you would like next time we order some i can send you one or two to play with. I don't think it pulls the same amount as a Graphic Card would though:P And the team developing it had no problems so far but ill reach out to them and see Also any idea why my other mPcie board (the apple one) boots fine (doesn't give a product id of abcd)
  10. We are currently running the assumption that the espresso is under powered for this board (sad) looking at possibly the clear fog ( as there does not seem to be an abundance of mpcie enabled boards) the new clearfog-gt-8k seems to have less "junk" that the Pro has but i assume it will take time for amrbian to support it? https://www.solid-run.com/marvell-armada-family/clearfog-gt-8k/
  11. Maybe "high powered" was the wrong word as the card does not have any option to be powered externally. It does work in other scenarios. is it possible to "hack" external power onto a mcpei board?
  12. We got some nice high powered mPCIE wifi boards that came up in EspressoBin without a problem but it seems that the board randomly reboots (no crash or anything) Assuming its power we tried putting in a 3amp power supply to it with no luck Seems it gets a bit stable when setting the TXPower down to ~15 (had to do it using regulatory database because txpower wouldn't work?!?!!?) but if i run it for a prolonged time ( 2-3 mins ) it will reboot again. Any thoughts what this could be? Is there a amp limit on the EspressoBin?
  13. Thank you @igorpecovnik https://github.com/armbian/build/commit/b4e8345bd8f18549dd893b096d37b86626ecbcd8
