    Right a python code that prints every number, then let it run for 10 minutes. Then use a temp sensor to find the temp of the main chip(DON'T use your finger!!!). My highest reading was 240 Fahrenheit.
    To prevent the main chip from exploding*(REALLY COOL, but you lose the RPI), unplug the RPI immediately when the screen goes dark.

    All. I've tried it on all of them, I've only blown up a 3B.

    Yes, it only hit 200 flat. I did stop it early since it was new. Have fun.

    I currently have a Pi4 running OpenMediaVault as a file server and music server. Every time I fire up my laptop it backs up my files using Syncthing.

    I also have a Pi3B running CQRLog, TQSL, and rig control.

    Another Pi3 runs CubicSDR to an SDRPlay RSPdx.

    Until recently I ran a Wordpress web site from home on a Pi3.

    As you can tell, I'm a big fan!

    I'm curious, did you set up an external hard drive? What kind, capacity, etc?

    I generally don't because im unhappy with USB performance on the RPis, although my Pi 4s are a lot better.
