:hmmm: I do NOT have the "right" to tell anyone what they should do...
but I reserve the "right" to tell them what they should "consider".

Actually the best solutions are these Pi carrier boards because the Pi "Compute" module can also be used w/ the Turing Pi clusterboard...

I just picked up 2 carrier boards... :thumbsup:

One for Porteus (ARM) and one for Minix (NetBSD/ARM)...

the goal is to develop a Turing Pi cluster solution using a Porteus frontend node to control
a 6 node Minix backend using my new "nexdock" laptop terminal w/ these carriers.

This "Compute" module GeeekPi cooling solution seems like the best option...

I just picked up another carrier board. My current goal is to use Porteus on
the frontend of one Minix cluster and Alpine Linux as a frontend on the other.

Then add Google TPU's on the frontends and load it into my dual mITX chassis w/ a ram disk drive.
