There are ways to get by.
1. Put the laptop on a cooling pad. Even a DIY where you raise the back of the laptop can help.
2. LIMIT the CPU usage. It's a Windows setting for when you know you will be doing this.
I have an i5 3230M laptop with 8g ram.
To be able to edit 4K, I tried to use proxy in Adobe Premiere Pro.
Media Encoder starts encoding, and some minutes later, my laptop turn off because of overheating.
Any way to lower media encoder performances, so it takes more time but uses less CPU and then avoid overheating ? Or any other solutions guys ?
A big thanks in advance
