I know when I first got it I put the thermal pad on then placed the heatsink without putting the screws in the heatsink first. This caused the thermal pad to move off slightly. Also thought I killed it by pushing down to hard and all . Temp wise low usage you might get away with no active cooling but this thing does pack a bunch for its size. And I will add temp wise it does handle better then raspberry pi 3 due to the massive heatsink. I've tested this for 4 days straight on xmrig and it sits @ 58c stock speed all 8 cores. 29.5hs btw for cryptonight. Just make sure when you shutdown under armbian you pull the power plug because it doesn't shutdown right and CPU heats up. Under friendlyarm it does the same btw only power off button works. So sudo halt or logout doesn't really shutdown right!. I'd like to do some benchmarking with xmrig and explore overclocking now that we're approaching the end of the summer heat. Can you share your xmrig build instructions? I am not finding anything concrete on the github for an armv8 aes support. EDIT: I did get xmrig running using the standard build instructions for Ubuntu 16.04 (using gcc 6.3.0). I am getting a consistent 28.2 h/s with those build parameters and no overclock. Any suggestions for a more optimal build are highly appreciated. Edited September 11, 2018 by datsuns Additional information 0 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
