Is it possible to overclock it ? I’ve applied a fan and no I’m on ~35-39c and I’d like to extract a little more of this small beast.
As far as I know (and I can see in the script), overclocking with
dietpi-config is only possible on the RPi SBCs.
But I found some hints here for overclocking the RK3328 (which is used by the NanoPi Neo 3). I don’t know to what extent this applies to the Neo 3, since the Rock64 is linked there.
Overclocking: With older releases of Armbian, Overclocking is done with the below commands
sed -i "s/MAX_SPEED=.*/MAX_SPEED=1510000/" /etc/default/cpufrequtils service cpufrequtils restart
But on the latest version you can overclock with
But I also read that’s it somewhat risky, since the clock speed is also coupled to RAM and chipset clocks, so IDK what happens if you mess this up. You probably have to reflash, in the worst case you can fry your SBC I think.
