# 1 Thermal Issues
12-03-2011, 11:01 AM
With the Season 5 release, I am unable to finish creating a character because for some reason that area causes my GPU to overheat. The character selection menu, if I don't click on it fast enough will also cause my GPU to overheat.

I would like to create a new Klingon for Season 5, but am unable to do so.

STO generally runs 20 degrees F hotter than anything else I run, including the other MMO I play. The character selection screen, and now the character creation area cause my GPU to run 50 degrees hotter and causes the game to freeze.

I have a GeForce 8800 GTX. This really shouldn't be happening.

Hrm strange one, try updating your drivers and see if that helps. If not then try forcing v-sync or using a frame limiter. Since there's not much action going on in those areas of the game it could be that your fps skyrockets and is contributing to overheating? Dunno, just a wild guess, something to try at least.

Oh and maybe a quick check of your case for dust on the fans is in order, can of compressed air ftw

Done all of that. This is an ongoing problem that was particularly apparent over on tribble. Seems that parts of it have moved over to holodeck.
