1. We're currently conducting systematic tests with the release version of macOS 11 (Big Sur) in order to offer full compatibility of our products as soon as possible. You can find our latest compatibility status - here


    Please note that although announced at the same time as macOS Big Sur, Apple Silicon processors are an independent release with separate compatibility concerns for NI products. Compatibility with macOS Big Sur will not yet ensure compatibility with Apple Silicon processors. At the moment, Native Instruments products are not supported on computers with Apple Silicon processors. Read more - here

    Well I haven’t broke any seals. The screws are not “protected”.
    And I haven’t broke anything :)
    Just poped the lid, took the pics and put it back. It’s called “knowing your gear” :))

    Or so you think! Let's hope you didn't accidentally open the hidden can of nano machines which are now busy protecting NI/s intellectual property </conspiracy mode>

    Now, more seriously... this could cause some issues because in pretty much every license agreement you pretty much agree to waive your rights for guarantees and such when you poke around in a device yourself. It's not so much what you did or didn't do, it's what NI could reasonably expect whenever you do run into hardware issues.

    But having that out of the way: those are definitely cool shots and don't get me wrong here: I've opened too many computers and other hardware components to know where you're coming from. I don't disagree with you, but there's a little more to that story here.

    Thanks for sharing!

    I always open every piece of gear I own, but this time I cant so thanks for sharing this.

    Is there no thermal compound or thermal pad between that heatsink and the bottom aluminum cover? It just does 'dry' heat transfer? :eek:
    A bit confused about it having USB 3 support and that note about "Indoor Use Only".

    My understanding is that, as of recently, "Warranty void if seal is broken" isn't actually legal/enforcible in the US (or, at least, California.)
    A win for the "things should be repairable" crowd!

    How did you reach the conclusion that it's not the E3950?

    Sorry Already closed it back. The other side is covered by a huge aluminum radiator. It’s stuck with cooling paste. I wasn’t feeling THAT adventurous to peel that off.

    just checked the images again and the reference docs:

    it shows on the board:
    QA50. which is the qa5 board of course
    but it also shows B.0 for the hardware revision.

    in the congatec docs revision B.0 is for the part number 015224 which is exactly this one:

    so its a Celeron J3455 slightly overclocked..or the public info of 1.6Ghz is just wrong ;)

    Hello,

    According to Maschine+ specifications printed by Native Instruments. Maschine+ comes with 32 GB eMMC. But Congatec QA-50 part number 015224 onboards 16 GB eMMC only.
