RetroPie Freeze after couple of hours
i have raspberry 3b+ , So after a few hours my retro freeze and i need to power off and power on .
i have it overclock -
Help anyone ?
anyways, if you have freezing, your overclock is almost certainly too aggressive. difficult to tell which particular part of the overclock is unstable as every board is different. i would take away all overclocks and then slowly reintroduce them until you get instability again.
(although i wouldn't overclock at all as i think it's mostly pointless!)
still getting stuck .
Weird cause the Temp' never going up from 60'.
@shavecat can you post your config.txt? remember you need to remove all overclocks, not just the over_voltage.
it won't be a temperature issue. pi downclocks if the temperature gets too high. it will be a silicon limit issue.
okay so this is with no overclock -

that setting is pointless btw: https://retropie.org.uk/docs/Memory-Split/
buuuut, everything else seems fine. if you're still getting instability, it is most likely a bad PSU or cable problem.
order new one online ...
thanks a lot :)

Notice the usage of a custom kernel in the posted configuration:
Perhaps would be recommendable to switch to the stock kernel to discard that factor.
@hhromic Not really sure that's the culprit, that's the kernel image used to get Wine working - see the (rather recent) Diablo-on-Wine-on-Retropie thread. But for a 3B+ it might be a factor, given the frequent updates added by the Raspbian team to stabilize it on this new model.
