    Oh, I didn't know that this exists. The difference to the V1 are the full size HDMI connectors instead of the micro HDMI and that there is an infrared receiver installed (you can install it on your own on the V1 boards).

    I also thought about it. But I attach the SSD with my music data often to my Mac to synchronise it with the music stored there (the SSD is in HFS+ format and a 1:1 copy of my iTunes/Music library and it is mounted ro on the Pi). So the integrated SSD will be a little bit complicated to attach it to the Mac and the Pi.
    For PCP I am using the SD card and I have an extra USB Stick for the LMS library in one USB 3 port.

    It seems that the only connection between the M.2 SSD tray and the RPi is that little rigid USB link piece that connects to the RPi's lower USB3 socket.



    So if you wanted to go down that route, I would imagine that you could shut down the RPi, remove that junction piece, and connect the tray to your Mac with a USB3 male-to-male cable instead.

    Looks like Argon is supplying the M.2 to USB3 converter. I hope they did their homework, as there are some adapters that don't work well with the PI4.

    Not sure how well these adapters are supported with trim support either.

    According to here, the Argon M.2-to-USB adapter supports UASP. What can I use under pCP7 to check/test trim support?

    I am sure it will work as I heard from many that they are using it.
    Also I saw a list with adapters that work together with the Pi 4 and it is on this list.
    Here is the list (German forum, it is the one with the link to Berrybase, a German distributor of the Argon One cases): https://forum-raspberrypi.de/forum/t...u-finden-sind/

    I don't think it will be supported.

    Just so you are aware, although pretty fast the, full speed of the M.2, apparently, is not available on the rpi

    That is clear, also it is only a M.2 SATA SSD not an M.2 NVMe SSD, so it will not be faster as an external attached USB 3 SATA SSD.

    I've tweaked the python script to make it slightly easier to use a separate config file under pCP. I changed the 'tmpconfig' line as folows:

    Code:
    #	tmpconfig = load_config("etc/argononed.conf")
    	tmpconfig = load_config("/home/tc/argononed.conf")
    Then I put this argononed.conf example file in /home/tc

    Code:
    #
    # Argon One Fan Configuration
    #
    # List below the temperature (Celsius) and fan speed (in percent) pairs
    # Use the following form:
    # min.temperature=speed
    #
    # Example:
    # 55=10
    # 60=55
    # 65=100
    #
    # NOTE: Lines beginning with # are ignored
    #
    # Start below:
    55=10
    60=55
    65=100
    To make any changes in this file take effect the python script needs to be restarted, e.g. by (backing up and) rebooting (or the process can be killed and then restarted from the command line). This means there's very little benefit compared to editing the python script itself. But at least with this method the python script can be left untouched.

    If I knew anything about python I'd have a go at making it re-load this 'argononed.conf' file every time it checks the temperature, so that it can be changed on-the-fly without restarting the script. But I think a few default temperature settings are good enough that I can put off learning python for a bit longer :-)

    Trim support rarely documented in the controller documentation. But in general, USB controllers do not support the online trim. Some do support kernel 'unmap' (The kernel keeps track of what needs trimmed)

    Here is a quick article I found, which at least describes what's going on. https://lemariva.com/blog/2020/08/ra...g-enabled-trim There were not as nice of writeups availiable when I set this up on my Samsumg T5 SSD.

    Please note the warnings in the blog.
