Question

PC Temperature

Hello, I just bought a new HP Omen PC and see that my frame rates in a couple of games I play (first person racing) are running 200 to 300 FPS and there is a lot more detail. Higher frame rates and detail tax the system a bit more which of course creates heat. The Omen is categorized as a gaming PC, so maybe my concerns are moot, but will such a high frame rate create enough heat to cause damage and if so, is there a fail-safe (either available or on board) to prevent that?

Great question for HP.

In reply to: PC Temperature

But the usual CPUs and GPUs do have thermal limiting built in. Beyond that, back to HP.

water-cooling

Water cooling is always a good idea, as thermal throttling might set in after a while ... Thermaltake has good stuff - I am quite happy with it
