How practical is a cluster?

If I were to do multiple things, for e.g. running 1/2 (small) server(s), and Raspbian, would it be more practical to use a cluster of multiple different Pi(as the power b/w would be shared right?) or just use each Pi standalone?

Cool hardware HATs?

What HATs are there that let you 'expand/upgrade' the RPi 3's power?

What Raspberry Pi 3 case should I get?

I'd like something that has access to the GPIO pins if possible, but I'm not completely sure if I'll use them, so is there a case that has really good thermal management?


I'm considering this right now: https://www.amazon.com/Raspberry-Case-i ... B01LXSMY1N

How can I change the resolution and refresh rate?

I've looked at the config.txt file, as well as used a program called PiCon to see the available modes.

Is there any way to run the Pi at 720p at 30Hz?

WiFi Adapter barely works

I've been using my Pi for a long time now, and the WiFi adapter that I bought works fine with Raspbian and RetroPie/ES.

But it isn't recognized on OpenELEC...is there any way to fix this...or do I have to buy a new adapter?

How does NDS emulation work on the Pi 3?

A long while back, a saw a post that NDS games barely emulate on the Pi2, but Tetris DS was playable at 25FPS.

Now with the Pi3's faster performance(and possible overclock-ability), is NDS emulation any better?

Re: Moonlight Embedded

If you use GeForce Experience(or Steam?), you can select a normal application. Then you can try to open a file using Windows Explorer, and then stream your windows desktop to your RPi.

A lighter Raspbian(or skin)?

I was just wondering if there was a more optimized, lightweight version of Raspbian, or anyway to make it like so. Are there any sort of skins or programs that help Raspbian run even smoother?

I'm pretty sure the RPi2 will support more things, but the RPi3 will do them faster. Also, it seems like the RPi3 gets extremely hot occasion...

I di a search for this, and I found out that Berryboot and NOOBS let the user use multiple OSes, but how do I install multiple OSes of ones that aren't in the lists?

Also, is there a guide on using SSH with the Pi?
