Can someone tell me if maybe i have a faulty board. My cpu tems reach 150 Fahrenheit while watching video then just cuts off. I believe my board is faulty but was wondering if anyone else is having like issues

65C is not a high temperature, theboard can do 80-90 without crashing.
What player/os/power supply are you using?

You should try with a different power supply just to rule out power as a problem
I'm guessing power comes over the otg cable. You should try something with a barrel connector so you can remove the jumper. That would buy you ~8C in temperature. It's also worth to try with a short usb cable (the one supplied with power banks) to reduce resistance.

I think it was the charger giving me my problems... Im hovering around 45C to 55C now with a barrel connector from amazon for the c2... It is just weird because before with the samsung charger i never had a proble with it on my other c2. I will run it overnight as see what happens.... gotta do some more testing with videos and the such... thanks for all the imput
