You guys might also make a specific 3D settings game profile for your WaR executable and set the "Threaded Optimization" to OFF in addition to disabling the AA & AF.

It has helped with some oddities before.  It's for the GPU better utilizing multi-core system processors.  Probably wouldn't hurt at all, making sure the global setting for that is off, if you only have a single core system.

Another AMD X2 (dual core) paired with a NVidia GPU with heat problems.
Am I starting to see a pattern here?

Shrecken, are those 3 PCs you're using to run WAR all Intel machines?

Is there a way to check the temp of a Dell system?  I built my last computer and it had a temp monitor system I could check by just clicking.   it was  a Abit KT7 Raid motherboard but with this Dell system I bought I have no idea how to check the temp I don't think they come with a temp checking program.

Well, I would rather find out how hot it's running before I actually have a problem...thats kind of the point. I only played for short time but don't want to play for a long session if it's running hot.

Andrew,

Antialiasing was turned off for this game on default. I turned off antisoptric, however, but it makes no difference.

This is the only game that runs on 80 degrees plus on GPU, not CPU. The other games run at about 70 degrees.

The CPU is fine, it is just the graphics card that is getting hot, even after 1 min playing time.

We're looking at having a Beta patch to address this issue effecting a small number of GPU's.

Should be ready in a day or two.

Great news and no worries. Just take your time.

As it is a bit cold now in Europe, it helps heating up my room.

No, 54C is pretty typical under load. Depends on the processor but 60-62C is usually the recommended upper limit these days.

Video cards usually try to keep themselves topped out at 80C but can supposedly hit 90 before things go awry. Still, 80C is a preferable limit.

With this new patch, the overheating problem doesn't occur on my machine anymore.

Thanks a lot for this fix.

I just installed the patch and the temperature is at 68°C now (was at 98-103°C before) when the game is running.
That's how it should be when playing a 2D-game on my system ... 68°C is the idle temp.

Now I can play the game again. Thank you!

Hi all, I have new info, I have installed on my computer one new Sapphire ATI 4870 512mb GDDR5 and when I play CCWAR the temperature from graphics card up to 68º and the revolutions from fan to 40%, it is too for one 2D game and this graphic card.

Of course I have not tested the card with the beta patch, I´m playing one multiplayer gc and I would like end it without problems.
