Don´t feel like flying these days....

Recommended Posts

...with +104 º F /+40 º C most of the day , I have to check my GPU/CPU  temps, can hear the fans screaming and when making 3h flights I am starting to worry about the integrity of my PC. The weather is crazyHOT here in Southern Europe these days and I am starting to think I´d better skip some flights to take care of my rig. until this long heat wave ends at least, walk in the shade guys...

Sounds like an aircon unit would help a lot. 

Or stick you PC in the frige 🙂(joke)

Is it the heat wave from Africa everyone is talking about or just very hot....

You could lower your clocks on the CPU in BIOS, and your GPU with MSI Afterburner just to be safe.

Yep. Like I pray now for several days. Install afterburner. Undervolt your GPU. And go. 
 

I undervolted my 3080ti to a point where I now get 45-50 FPS in 4K Ultra and 65C in temps. The fans are so slow I can’t barely hear them. And that is with 30C ambient temps.

What are your temps under load now? Did you try it?

Generally, the hardware will throttle at certain temperature thresholds to ensure nothing is damaged. I think for example current gen NV GPUs start throttling at 83 C. So basically you are safe to try if you can bear the fan noise.

Turn down your graphics setting to a preset. High. I would say. Until you resolve your cooling issues. Re seat  your chips with fresh thermal paste and de congest all the heat sinks and fans. Temps like those are not the fault of the sim.

I can vouch for that, +40 ºc here too and I was careful to install a unit just above my desk in the office right over the PC - pure bliss 🙂

My daughter is on a trip to Seattle, and they are having temperatures there they have never seen before. Nothing there is airconditioned  either, because they never needed it.

Cap your frames. You will be blown away how much lower you GPU temps will be. I do 60 for most games but in MSFS I find 45 to be a nice balance. 30FPS is just to low for me. 😏

I fly at 4k on 32" so there is no way I can fly 45+ without my 2080S  getting to 85º. It´s not a real worry guys, I can wake up early and make my scheduled flight at 7am, that´s real commitment 😉 .

Just a regular fan pointed at your computer might work to keep things cool. Always had a fan or two kicking around the shop to keep equipment cool when a built-in cooling fan or the building A/C failed. 


Specs: black box thingy with spinning fans, lights and a bunch of wires that go to screens with pretty colours and a keyboard with many keys. The black box thingy also has a push button activated coffee cup holder.

Or if you have a glass side, open it or take it off.
