Teilnehmer posted a topic in Add-on ReleasesRavien’s Critical Temperature Gauge version 188.8.131.52 A plugin showing a temperature gauge and which part is going to blow up first. Known issues: A few second hang-up can occur at the first appearance of the settings window since the mod still uses the old GUI system. Available via CKAN.

KSP was always a demanding game for my CPU. But with KSP 1.1 it even got worse. Especially in the VAB/SPH. What bothers me the most is, that my CPU temperature (i7 2600) is now at up to 90-97 °C which is near the limit of Tj of 98°C. It has a total CPU load of 40-50%. The temperature on the motherboard maxes out at about 43 °C during play. I don't know where the sensor of the CPU is located. But this temperature feels worrysome to me. Even if the CPU is not yet throttling back to prevent thermal overstess. When in flight, the temperature decreases to about 80°C, which is also odd, consdering that in the VAB there are no physics, while in play mode there are. What I tried was to lower the graphic settings from maximum to minimum. But it didn't make any difference. It's apparently not the graphics that cause that. I also deactivated the VAB ground crew. No effect. Recently I added a second side fan directly over my CPUs downblower and made my fan settings much more agressive than I used to have it. But it only had little effect. And I don't want to mount some other CPU cooler, as my PC is 4,5 years old now and I plan to build a new gaming PC until spring 2017 anyway. I don't want to spend more money on upgrades. But until then, I'm stuck here. And summer is coming... Apart from buying a better CPU cooler, is there anything I can do software-wise to reduce my CPU temperature in KSP, especially in the VAB?
