Further to my earlier series of blog posts on overclocking the Raspberry Pi (specifically the Pi 2), I’ve written up my experiences of overclocking the new Raspberry Pi 3.
As the new machine tends to run much hotter than the Pi 2 (at least my system does), overclocking has to take into account the thermal governor, and it’s underclocking behaviour.
In my new blog post I look at overclocking with a view to tuning the system mainly to run RetroPie 3.6 (I finally made the jump from RetroPie 2, and am very happy with the changes!) Overclocking the Raspberry Pi 3: Thermal Limits and Optimising for Single vs Multicore Performance
“After a great many tests, in a large number of combinations, my machine appears to be stable with the following settings:
Raspberry Pi 3 Stable Overclock Values
Its all a bit hit and miss on the Pi3 I was using settings basically the same and I started to get corruption and now no boot, lucky I backed my Retropie setup before I started to play.
Before messing with the over clock on pi3 backup up first or use a old card for testing. It seems not as simple as with Pi2 and Pi1, this maybe why in the official overclock menu it says no overclock available.
