Welcome Page Forums RetroPie Project GPIO Adapter, ControlBlock etc. What GPIO pins does the ControlBlock use? Reply To: What GPIO pins does the ControlBlock use?



I also plan to connect it to my pi with jumper wire instead of mounting it directly. I read in the documentation that there is a slight voltage drop with in the power circuitry, so you need a good power supply. I was planning to use a 5V 6A power supply like this:

Will using the ControlBlock to power the pi affect my ability to overclock? Will it affect my ability to power controllers/mouse/keyboard/thumb drive/wifi from the USB?

The MOSFET that the ControlBlock uses is the IRLML6402 ( It is rated for a maximum of 3.7 A.
The ControlBlock works with the various overclocking configurations that can be selected from within the rasps-config tool.
If your other USB devices work well is hard to say for me since that depends on their power consumption behavior.

Hope that helps?
