    NanoPI M4

    I like to further add regarding Sabrent 256GB Rocket NVMe i have tested this write speed and read speed same time. Read 390mb give or take few mb and around 380 write. So i would assume this is the upper limit on the pci2.1 on the m4 of around 780 something considering the NVMe is rated 1050mb write 3100 read. Still alot faster then the ssd i tested through usb3.

    The NVMe hat 12v fan socket doesn't work at all for armbian, most likely missing a drive or something. I got it to around 50c and the fan didn't even kick in. I have directly connected the fan to the 5v gpio port for the time being works fine not loud at all but downside to this is that you have to fully disconnect the device to power the fan down. Their was some information regarding controlling the port pwn0 link did try it but it completely bricked the account i exported to so. Have not tried friendlyelec desktop as i prefer armbian's clean image. As for cooling i have no problems even with fan off in the metal case as i have used copper shims and thermal paste sits at 30c idle and 40c something under load. I will say its a pain to say the least to do that in the metal case without the copper shim going misaligned. I did try their thermal pad but tbh temps were going up to 50c once the metal case was warmed up. The metal case is alot more effective though then the normal heat-sink they supplied.

    Can confirm Sabrent 256GB Rocket NVMe PCIe M.2 2280 works in armbian with NVMe hat. Have included test of the read speed which is an impressive 734mbs as for write speed could not do. Exactly same conditions as nicod video above. Main website Amazon link Not sure if anyone else is having problems with the 12v fan with the NVMe hat but this doesn't work in armbian, so assume something needs to be added to armbian to activate it at p-mos switch. If it does could be i got a faulty fan, NVMe board or it activates at a higher temperature then i can get it atm in the metal case. Thanks nicod for video btw saved me some time.
  4. Think the only problem i am finding with my m4 atm is youtube playback at 1080 in theory it should be able to do it looking at the chip (VP9 : 2160p@60fps(4096x2304)) but again its down to software etc using those hardware features. But apart from that i am using my m4 as an actual pc with armbian works very well.
  5. Your a star!! I assume i would have to update the kernel 10 boards to do :( cant do that through fabric :(
  6. Bit of an update regarding power button not working on nanopi fire3. Tech support got back to me and its missing a driver which is located friendlyarm kernel source code. I am not sure how to implement this yet but will look into it as and when i get some more time, hopefully we can implement this into armbian.
  7. I think you would have to wire it yourself tbh. Connector wise your looking for http://www.hobbytronics.co.uk/cables-connectors/polarized-connector-housing a 3 pin one. Dont forget the crimp pins and all. Im assuming this is the right size for the pins but you will need to check the pin size. I dont have this board so cant be certain on the pin size.
  8. Agree with that. over 22c difference for me. Anyone wants to know what size shims i used 15mm by 15mm and 1.2mm thickness with a dab of thermal paste on cpu and topside of shim to main heatsink. Temperature difference Exactly same test with youtube 1080p 60c with thermal pad, 38 to 40c with copper shim and thermal paste each side of it.

    One thing i learned is to always buy the official cables purely for testing. The cable that works ok is friendly elec one which does work very well but the length is a problem for me to have the sbc on my desk without having extension leads all over it. https://www.amazon.co.uk/ACOCOBUY-Charger-Braided-Charging-Transfer/dp/B07F27DTW1 suppose to be rated 5v 4a with the dash charger i bought but bricks under load and with only hdmi connected!. https://www.amazon.co.uk/DUX-DUCIS-Oneplus-Charger-Adapter/dp/B07H5K8QG8 this dash charger works fine btw i got the load up to 2.2amps (with spikes up to 2.5amps)no problem with 4.93volts. So those in the uk who want an all in one plug (not adaptors etc) this does work for at least the stuff and load i stuck on it. Those who might be interested i used xmrig and used all cpu cores when testing which maxed out at 24h/s.

    Another thing if anyone is using the official dash charger from friendly elec, under load and a few usb devices connected what is your voltage? i am getting 4.93 with hdmi, usb stick, bluetooth adaptor, ssd (powered by usb) and under full cpu load. Thing what is annoying me is as soon as i connect any cable longer then the official one it bricks which i assume min voltage is 4.85 ?

    Might pass on that only got it today I will just wait and order sd to emmc adaptor

    I have emailed their tech support so when they get back to me hopefully i can help others. Just a quick question regarding nanopi m4 is their a way to boot from sd card first over emmc so i can use the armbian-config to delete and reinstall the emmc ? Didnt buy the sd to emmc adaptor oh im regretting that now

    Haven't got my m4 yet hopefully this week but i would of thought its an option for people to solder on their own power buttons to shutdown the device. I know the nanopi fire3 already has a power button but right next to it is the pwr_key which id assume allows one to solder on their own power button or install some sort of jumper. Problem is as i know from the fire3 this doesn't work with armbian os and only works with friendlyelec os's. Thats what i assume its for anyways i could be wrong.
  14. Think wtarreau summed up most bits but temp wise 63 is completely fine tbh (what temp mine were running at in the summer). Also have you tried completely disconnected the problematic board and completely discharging it and only starting it up with power in and no peripherals. In the past twice now i found static and a dodgy external usb hard-drives have caused problems with computers. Also if you got a multimeter its worth checking the gpio pins to see if they are 5volts at least that way you can eliminate its not the power supply chips on the board or weak connection on the micro usb.
  15. I have only started seeing this the last few weeks normally i use them as headless servers and ssh into them. But when a few wasn't showing up on my router i connected the hdmi to see what it was displaying. As for power supply i doubt its that as i been using this setup for a few months now the only difference is i am using stable versions armbian (before was useing wip) and different sd cards which are brand new class 10 u1. I have to do a fresh install of armbian to get the boards working again but this evening i am trying 2 different sd cards just to make sure its not these new ones.
