Safe temp?

Moderators: chensy, FATechsupport

Hi

Were wondering what is a safe temperature to run the NanoM4 @ for long periods of time?

With the large heatsink, running CPU at 100% for many hours, it creeps up to 70 degrees without a fan.

This seems high to us to run for long periods of time

Whats the design temp?

Thanks!

I'm not speaking for the NanoPi M4 specifically, but 70 degrees is generally a safe temperature for a single board computer. For example, the raspberry pi starts underclocking itself at 85 degrees, and gets damaged at 90 degrees.

When it comes to the NanoPi M4, I have run it for more than a week on 100% cpu (about 65-70 degrees) without any side effects. If you plan on overclocking, or keeping it in a warm environment, you could consider a fan.
