  1. Thanks for the information. I now have a better understanding on what is going on with it now. I just checked and looks like my Razer keyboard was the issue. These is the power draw once booted. This is the draw from a USB 2.0 port on another PC in the house. Thanks everyone for the help!
  2. That is the ammount that is shown on my USB voltage meter. 4.68v is where it holds at once the OPi is booted. The following layout cause the board to continually heat up. PC > Keyboard (USB Port) > USB Voltage Tester > (microusb) OPi Currently I have it plugged into a USB 2.0 port on another box I can test the A/V when I return from work. But the OPi is no where near as hot or crashing.
  3. guidol, thank you for your help and the temps. I think I have resolved the issue by using a different USB port. The OPi R1 started last night out at 32, climbed to 48 likely the boot process and startup, then came back down to 35-39 for the remainder of the night without the need for any fan or moving air with an ambient room temp of 26c. So far I am seeing a uptime of 11 hours this is a new high compared to the max 6 hours I would get before. I can only assume the USB port on my keyboard I was using to power the device was giving it more power than it could handel. Thank you for the information on the barrel plug adapter I will look into that if I continue to have issues.
  4. Thanks, if I have to scrub the card it wont be a total loss. I also did some reading on using the microUSB for power. The barrel style plug you use on the R1 can you take photos / link me to the product name? I did not see that for sale when I purchased the unit.
  5. Thanks, is there a way for me to upgrade to the nightly without flashing the SD card?
  6. Priolr to starting the unit I cheked the OPR1 and the temp was 27c. Plugging it into the USB on my keyboard for power it seems to consume: 4.95-5.00 V (stable at 4.68V) 0.25-0.60 A This was tested using my USB Tester. After 8 mins of idle with nothing plugged in I will reach 51c. All temps checked at heatsink with a IR temp checker.

Any suggestions? The board was from Alibaba I reached out to them for support but they best they could say is use a 32GB sd card not 128GB. The best uptime I was able to hold was around 6 hours with a fan blowing right on the unit. Edit: here is the OS version Welcome to ARMBIAN 5.38 stable Ubuntu 16.04.3 LTS 4.14.14-sunxi Looks like I am a few releases behind. Any chance I can run a in place upgrade that would resolve the issue? My other thoughts are to tune down the CPU but am unsure on this.
  7. Good afternoon, I am seeking advice on cooling my Orange Pi R1, it seems to overheat after about 6 hours of idel even with a heatsink on it. Currently i have a desk fan moving air around it and it holding around 31c with ambient room temperature around 25c. The device is just running a network bridge, pihole, and vnstat (hourly). CPU is on average 1-3% and memory use is 53%. Touching the device it is hard as it is physically hot. The USB hat is not installed. Any ideas?
