    Some internal photos

















    The BT3 Pro comes with 4GB DDR3 RAM, and 64GB ROM,Intel Atom x5-z8350 Processor(2M Cache,Upto 1.92Ghz) built in wi-fi module,Bluetooth 4.0 & usb 3.0 support.Iv been playing around with this for just over a week now & i have to say im very immpressed with it The device is fast and does what it should.The main plus for me is being able to pick wether to use the VGA or the HDMI output both work as they should.

    Ports and locations
    On the front of the BT3 Pro is nothing but the LED indecator,
    On the right hand side is a full sized SD card slot & 2 USB ports not forgetting some vents
    On the left hand side is the VGA port
    On the rear is the power button,12vDC power port,USB3 port,HDMI port,RJ45 port,3.5mm headphone port, a reset button and a few more vents.
    On the underside of the device is more vents and the 4 rubber feet to stop it sliding around the desktop.









    Setup
    On the first boot of the BT3 Pro Took me to the windows setup, language product key etc etc (No need to enter a windows key here) just skip it for now then you will find it gets fully activated after the setup is compleat.I then got notified that there was a windows update so i let that run, That Took over an hour to update and now i have the latest Windows Version 1703 Build 15063.413

    DEVICE

    My BT3 PRO is now showing around 41.5GB of free space in windows after all the updates.

    A quick look at the BT3 PRO



    External box temps after 1 hour of gaming



    What works

    64GB & 128GB sd works
    128GB USB Stick
    Samsung 1TB unpowered HD works
    Tronsmart Mars G01 Gamepad works
    Logitech c270 webcam works

    The boot time on the BT3 PRO is around 25 seconds & that takes you straight to the main windows screen where your ready to go.The BT3 PRO has plenty of venterlation holes & with all the testing iv done the device has only ever got warm never hot.I think this is down to the nice sized heatsink thats fitted to the PCB.

    The Beelink BT3 Pro is a all plastic square box with venterlation holes, Also a extra large aluminum heatsink on top of the PCB, Giving it a good chance to keep the unit cool

    Nice to see the low temp after the hour of gaming, so sounds like they have got the cooling spot on.

    Poor CrystalDiscMark results for the storage though, which at the price point that it sells for makes the competition look a little better, although the VGA port may add value to those that can take advantage of it.

    Does it support concurrent dual display usage?

      It sure does and with no lag what's so ever I can see.

      The heat sink on this thing is almost as big as the PCB and it makes all the difference (No cooling mods needed)
