Running two clients and two screens, all graphic setting at low but with CQ on and it has fried my cpu and motherboard. ugh

Dont blame the game for your hardware issues.

Worst case scenario : the game will use 100% of both your GPU and CPU, and even that should not cause any system failure.

Ouch.

There definitely seems to be something going on with AMD processors. My system has a Phenom II x4 965. With two instances of the game running, the four cores never go over about 75% utilization for more than a second or two at a time (as reported by AMD System Montior), but the CPU temperature climbs from it's normal idle temperature of 43c until it plateaus around 64/65 (reported by Asus PC Probe II). It's never gone over 55c running multiple instances of EVE (or any other game for that matter) in the past.

If your system cannot handle being used under load then it has faults that are the problem of the manufacturer of the entire system and/or individual components.

This is the same as when the login screen caused Nvidia 8000 series cards to overheat due to a known fault in them, something that they were already doing on other games.

keep an eye on those temperatures and disable CQ

As Lork Niffle and I have stated, your computer should not burn under 100%/heavy load.
If you can't understand that's your problem.

Probably bad karma for being an ***

I have Intel Core 2 Duo E7500 @2.9GHz, 4GB Ram, Radeon HD 5700, on a 5+ year old mobo -- running two clients with max settings on both no problem.

With Load Station Environment disabled, my temp hasn't gone above 44c with two clients running for nearly a half hour. The only problem, I can't see which ship I'm in. I have to check the menus of everything in the hanger to find the one that doesn't say Make Active...or the one that does say Leave Ship. Although, I could bring up the Fittings screen first to limit the search to one hull type.

my sys is burned by the smell, phenom9500ati all asus, blewup in incarna i am still investigating it may be a software bug that heat the cpu and thos that dont have good cooling may get cooked...

or you could simply look at which ship is highlighted in the ships hangar box.

o got problem with my i5 and an evga gtx 460......gpu process over 90% (high details) low details ( 80-85-90 depende on the angle of view)
is quite annoying to see the card working on so high temperature and ear the fun working as hell......need to be fixed this problem from ccp

How often do you clean the inside of you're PC to remove the dustbunnies?

Did you buy a stock pc (IE Premade Acer, dell, etc) - if this is the case you need to buy case fans and put them in youself. They're lucky to have any by default, so nothing is in there to pump the hot air out and bring in cool air.

ONTOP of the no case fan thing for stock pc's - if you open it up you'll notice the wiring is EVERYWHERE, similar to spaggheti. If you have case fans - those wires are going to obstruct the airflow. Spend 10 minutes tidying the cables up - use cable ties to secure them to the metal casing.

Heat is Bad when you're gfx card and cpu are going full pelt - mk?


On another note - i have CQ disabled on my laptop. IT's a MSI GTX740. So it's got pretty good stock airflow on ot because its a gaming laptop. I have it sitting on a cooling plate. It still feels like a toaster when CQ is open. Rather than burn it out - ive turned it off. fix your'e engine. Kthx.

Just got in my CQ and after a minute the fan on my laptop was going crazy, sorry i cant risk playing a game that may wreck may laptop thats not even a year old yet

Tried Captain's Quarters out and after about 5 minutes of being logged in, my GPU fan started to sound like a 747. Opened up my control panel and saw that it was at 93 degrees. No other game I play does this. Looks like I will be disabling the main feature of this 'patch'.

GPU is a ATI HD5770 1gb, with a Q6600 CPU at 3.2ghz and 4gb DDR2 memory. Motherboard is an Asus P5E with X38 chipset.

pc dust free,

3 case fans and a cpu fan, all working.

So I am sat here with no gaming machine and no money to buy a new one because I installed incarna..

I play Arma 2, eve online(two clients) full settings with no problem, but incarna fried my pc.

I have petitioned

I have a similar temperature problem but not with my GPU. When in station my GPU sits around a steady 60 degrees, but my core temperature goes through the roof!

I found turning the graphics down a teenie tad (changing character textures from high to med) stopped it over-heating to the point of crashing, but it does seem hard to believe that the station enviroments require such an immense amount of power that it easily cooks quad cores and modern graphics cards.

Just attacked my computers guts with a vacuum cleaner and already I've noticed the temperature is lower than it normally is, so it's worth giving it a go if your computer has been holed up for some time without feeling the magic of vacuum maintenance \o/

Oh, and to those running multiple clients, it was posted in a dev blog not long ago that trying to run the station enviroments on more than one client has shown a radical increase in processer and graphical requirements to the point where most computers simply aren't able to do it. Until they do something to reduce the computer requirements for Incarna the only solutions really are to knock both of your clients graphics down to a minimum if you HAVE to multi-box, or only run one at a time.

CCP have a defenitly sometzhing wrong beocse CPU ussage goes on 85% for everyone i know we all have AMD procesors mo matter how many core all ppl have around 75-90% ussage of CPU in station. when undock 30% max :) ITS definetly not normal :)

Oddly I don't have that problem, well... kind of. I find in stations my cpu usage goes to 75-90% but only on ONE core, not all 4, more strange, it's core 2 that it's doing it too, completely ignoring core 1.

I did read something in one of the dev blogs about how they were changing stackless python to eliminate the 'gil', but it was all gobbledee**** to me (I learned c++, so python makes about as much sense as french), however I did notice in the blog the dev was talking about utilising cpu's, notable multiple cpu's, to try and steady the clients usage.

Kinda seems like that's backfired...

I am waiting for a reply to my petition......

My pc went very very hot, and then died, and regardless what anyone has to say here Incarna was the cause.

Never had a temperature issue with any other game, but 30 mins with incarna killed mine.

I am staying calm atm, but I dont have enough money to buy a new pc, I am not happy.

I got an almost similar configuaration.

Incarna constantly overloads the GPU. And after a few applications in the Char Editor the PC dies with a Blue Screen.

STOP: 0x100000EA THREAD_STUCK_IN_DEVICE_DRIVER_M ...

And thats with actual drivers.

Hmm all core same here i had only 2 but still its qouite a lot it goes down in part CQ with billboar about 50%-60% ussage in part CQ where is ship hangar or when you face that direction you forehead :) it goes up to 70-85% its strange .. but still work good i have to idle with my acc in space not in station and its ok i can have stil lall three runinng with minimal problems ..

strange how it happens to 2 similar set ups, must attract the exact same amount of dust for them to overheat as well !

You ppl talking about disabling CQ, how to do it?

reading the threads on this forum about pilots having overheating problems, and the trolls and misery monkeys say "my system has no problem, im a elite pc user your system suck blah blah"

most of us are using machines that are well within the minimum spec for eve online, it dosnt matter if your machine is super-duper or not, if it meets the minimum spec for the game we should not have to worry about it frying our hardware.

I run a highend i7 pc.
As soon as I launch Eve, I hear my fans go nuts. Before patch I could run 3-4clients and everything was fine, but now something is not right.
Thought I got some virus first that ate memory, but now I start believing that this latest patch is ****ed up.

I tried AoC at launch and I remember their memory leak problem that made clients crash and freezelag like hell.
I am almost 100% sure CCP has some issue like that now, else people would not gotten this problem, even if they have an old or new pc.
