Differ about what.
why is my one request impossible?
I am still unsure what your request is and I certainly never said it (whatever it is) was impossible.

Anyway, I'll get my coat. Goodbye.

Absolutely no reason, in fact a main priority of the RPF is to encourage such ventures.
and actually use them how I want?
What you want, what is possible & what is economically viable are not the same.

Re: Multiple Pi’s, one system, separate jobs

Let me clarify, I’m looking to transmit all audio and video output information from the 4B to one 3B+, transmit and receive a connection to the USB controller built into another 3B+ from the 4B. This would allow me to disable the onboard video and sound cards on the main controller, while gaining f...

Yes. See pfletch' reply.

Personally I wouldn't even bother, don't get me wrong the Flirc case is brilliant for cooling & price but does fail with GPIO access. other solutions are out there.

As I emphasized in my post, a charger is not the same as a power supply unit, they may look the same and in many cases a charger can replace a PSU but, one has regulated voltage when under load the other does not.

Re: RPI 4 - broken twice

I think you've got Fahrenheit and Celsius mixed up. Running a Pi at 55F (<13C) should not be an issue for anyone and your case would feel cold if anything.

ETA: Even 55C won't be an issue.

Etcher software on your x86 PC is creating the SD Card from .zip download ( one does not need to unzip the download ) ?
Additionally, when using etcher there is no need to format your card.
