Recommended Posts

Normally my CPU runs at about 48-50 with p3d4.3 and all the addons running.......noticed on the earlier flight it was hitting 71, so glad I have liquid cooling....it's now ticking over on 39 whilst just doing online stuff......

how are you all fairing with this? any melt downs yet?

I'm normally in high 50's (laptop on cooling mat when running P3Dv4.

 

It has gone up to around 10 deg's when under load with the higher ambient temperature.

 

Thinking of gaming in the freezer if it gets much warmer!

I have had a couple of problems with one PC shutting down in the heat, but once I had removed the cat hair from the fans it has been ok. The other was with a 16 port switch. My internet kept dropping out in the heat and after a lot of messing about I discovered my switch was on the blink. It has finally been replaced and things are working again.  Replacement 16 port switches aren't cheap.

My flight sim PC was really labouring in the heat,even with liquid cooling, the heat passing through the radiator was hot enough to fry an egg!

I'm told it got so hot here once that all the corn started popping in the fields.  The popcorn got four feet deep and some of the alligators thought it was snow and froze to death.

Well Chief.......I had to wait 48 years.  I got married for the first time when I was 48 and never lived with anyone beforehand, so it was a long time coming!  :yesa:
