FWIW, I'm running warmer too with HF1 installed. Have placed a small desktop fan to pull heat away. No shutdowns (this is all non-technical) yet. I could heat my room with my PC alone now :)

Just an observation; it does seem to be running hotter. Thought it was nothing more than better utilization of HW on P3D's part...

Can you show screenshots of your temps?

How many watts is your PC's power supply?

starseed1,

We still haven't been able to reproduce this issue. I've tested multiple builds and every test run I've done has the same temperatures before and after the hotfix. I kept the settings exactly the same for each test. I looked at your video card specs: http://www.geforce.com/hardware/desktop ... ifications
Note the maximum temperature.

Also, your GPU should have it's own GPU monitoring tool that's specifically made for your graphics card for the most accurate readings. For example, if your card is EVGA, here is EVGA NVIDIA Geforce GTX 960's monitoring tool: https://www.evga.com/precisionxoc/

Asus, MSI, Gigabyte, etc. should also have their own GPU monitoring tools.

For now I'd recommend reducing settings until your GPU is less stressed. I'd also look to see if you're CPU bound before the hotfix and then no longer CPU bound after the hotfix.

Regards,
Brady

Please read my post thoroughly. It says clearly {no addons no augmentation in a default aircraft}
I wanted to include a photo of the current status running the original build mentioned on my last post .
This is how it should be running with the fix added. see photo.
I would appreciate a solution instead of comments regarding my system. Here is the proof.

This doesn't happen with my system either. Rather than being belligerent and belittling LM folks perhaps it is something unique to your system. Have you updated your video drivers recently? I seem to remember that there are issues with Nvidia's newest driver (saw this on other forums). Of course, I am running a Radeon card.

Apparently I'm NOT the only one having this issue. Again when I take out the Hotfix it goes away. This has happened on 2 different computers. Trying to reproduce something on your system doent mean it not an issue. IT ONLY HAPPENS WITH THE HOTFIX. The original build works fine I hardly think its the new computer I have. With the list of issues I see on the forum since the fix was implemented maybe it should be reworked. I ahve done everything you asked . No solution

Hi,
did anyone who have this problem looked at the framerates? Could it be that vsync or the framerate limiter didn't work after the Hotfix? My two GTX970 run at 38°C (watercooled) with 50 frames limited. Without vsync they go up to 55°C at around
80-120 frames. Only a sugestion.
regards
