Power consumption when idle



I bought that BPI M2+EDU and it doesnt even boot without a heatsink. And even with a heatsink+fan it does not go below 343K (70°C).

Is it possible to fix that constant cpu voltage bug?

I mean: Where do they hide the schematics? 

Constant 1.1V would be good enough in my case, because: I will never need 41200MHz and 4648MHz should be enough.

Furthermore I could add my own cpu voltage regulator, if i could reach a pad, that can take the current (maybe by desoldering an inductance)…

i found the schematics here: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/0B4PAo2nW2KfnflVqbjJGTFlFTTd1b1o1OUxDNk5ackVDM0RNUjBpZ0FQU19SbDk1MngzZWM?tid=0B4PAo2nW2Kfndjh6SW9MS2xKSWs -Arne

The overheats due to the constant CPU voltage of the M2+ is effectively a BIG problem. The CPU reach crazy temperature that can destroy it. It is what happened to mine !!!

Is there something plan to solve this issue? (and to replace for free my M2+ :slight_smile: )
