Re: raspberry pi 3B underclock

Add temp_limit=85 to the bottom of the config.txt file, the default value is 85, change to a different number then reboot to see if the CPU temp stays below the temperature limit, lowering the maximum temperature can lower the CPU speed regardless of the arm_freq value, because higher clock speeds e...
