Nice work but I doubt the heatsinks can be effective. Can you provide us with the temperature of the ...
Hi tkaiser and destroyedlolo
I use LeMedia and I have a script logging the temperature of the PMU.
The use is playing videos in low resolution, running rtorrent, and as scanner server.
I didn't read the temperature of the SoC, but I used the function you mentioned, so yesterday I started logging it.
When I'd mounted the case, I wouldn't have thermal paste, but after I acquire I put it into heatsinks.
So, today I got the log, and the results in the different situations are the follow:
BPI without case, without heatsinks:
- PMU temp - period: 4 months; min: 34.6; max: 74.6; avg: 55.9 ºC.
BPI in the case, with heatsinks, without thermal paste:
- PMU temp - period: 27 days; min: 39.4; max: 77.8; avg: 63.9 ºC.
BPI in the case, with heatsinks, with thermal paste:
- PMU temp - period: 4 days; min: 36.2; max: 68.2; avg: 61 ºC.
- SoC temp - period: 12 hours; min: 57.5; max: 60.4; avg: 58.6 ºC.
Tha last reading of temperatures are: PMU 66.6; SoC 58.6 ºC.
I know, it's very few time for compare, even the ambient temperature in the last days isn't high.
But the first impression is good. The average is high yet, but not peaks like before.
