ATI HD4850 overheating (AGAIN!!!!!!!) after 2/11 patch
 
I'm not even going to bother to type all this out. You already know the issue. I was using all the 'fixes' that have been posted here to get around it and it's been working for the past week. After the patch today, I was in-game about 15 minutes and the temps rose to 110c with fan maxed at 100%. PC shut off. Same issue that we've been reporting since beta. Now whta's the deal????

i have an ati 1950 pro and went to 110 c in 10 minutes too. I'm at 62 right now with no games running.

I'm tired of jumping through hoops to get this game to work. I've tried everything that's been posted here over the past few weeks and finally got it that I could play while keeping my temps under 100. Played for like 10 hours straight over the weekend, no problems.

What new set of hoops do we have to jump through now Cryptic? If you can't address this can you at least recommend a video card that your software will work with? We're really tired of this. Seriously.

Sounds like the cardis on its way out. I run the exact same card, and the temps NEVER go over 60 degrees.
Thats with the fan at 80% and a very cheap aftermarket cooler+fan on it.

Please note, stock coolers on GPU's are terrible.

Sounds like your card is biting the dust

Check in the Trouble Shooting tab under the graphics options.

They moved or added some new options there.

There is a switch for Max Framerate 30/60/120, and another one (a 10ms delay between frames if I rember correctly) that are meant to address overheating.

No the card is fine. We've been through all this before in the other dozen threads I've posted in. I don't care to discuss my card or the thermal paste or any other hardware issues. This is obviously a software issue. STO is the only thing that causes this problem and there are many people that have posted same.

Thanks Ziffy,
This seemed to help. I'm back to 93c @ 59% fan again.
