Hello Caldar Ian.

Not to put you down or anything, but here is my input. A patch to a game, a game, a program, anything that is used to make a CPU run @ any percentage should never break your pc. You should be able to run your CPU @ 100% load indefinitely with no problems. That's why most of us hardcore gamers/PC users like to break our CPU's in with a program like Prime95 to make them achieve their highest temperatures or to 'break them in'. Which is what I do. I know that with all 6 cores of my CPU my temps should never get above 53 deg C, with my room @ 72 degrees F. Obviously with my room getting warmer at any given time I know that I have quite a bit of room for it to get hotter. That being said, you never want to see anything over 60C with your CPU. GPU's can get a little hotter but nevertheless you don't want that either.

You NEVER want to use a stock CPU cooler in any case, no matter what anyone tells you. (Flame on if you like, those who know, know)Especially intel coolers. Better off using a wad of aluminum. Stock CPU coolers suck, they are just the bare minimum. When I build a computer be it for a customer, myself, whoever, I always buy an aftermarket COPPER cpu cooler to go with it all. Then once its all together, you test it, putting Arctic Silver 5 or the like on as thermal paste and make sure it is seated properly.

The Xbox 360 is well known for its cooling issues and the same thing goes for this, if Micro**** would have just made the fan stay at a constant 12v instead of 5-12v variable, and maybe complete copper heat sinks, they would have been in line with PS3 and Wii @ around a 5-10% failure rate, whereas they didn't, so they are @ a 53% failure rate.

That being said, a patch can never be at fault for making your pc overheat, or unless it has some code in it to just shut your fans down for you, and in that case maybe I could see it happening. But in all reality anything relatively new should have some kind of temperature shutdown in the BIOS settings.

All I'm saying, is that CCP won't even give you back a ship you lost because it shows nothing in their logs, and I bet they are going to tell you that they see nothing in their logs about your PC blowing up either :P

If you need any help regarding your current setup, you know how to get ahold of me in game. Good luck man, and sorry to hear.

EDIT: I am not saying you won't have problems with new patches, BSOD's, file errors, crashes, whatever the case, I'm jsut saying that a patch won't melt your PC/Graphics card if properly cared for.

I'm running an HP Pavilion mated to an Nvidia 9800 GT. Prior to this update, I was able to run EVE with no issue. Now, if I run CQ, the video card's temperature climbs and climbs. So I had to turn CQ off.

Unfortunately, running in space itself actually runs my video card a few degrees hotter than before the update. Not so hot that I'm worried, but the card is now working harder that previously.

Strange at all .... as said in another post i run a phenom II X6 wit a gtx 460 (OC) 8gig ram a 460w Psu Win7 x64 and .... no problems at all in CQ or no overheat (and i have a HP microtower with only one case fan and a generic amd cpu cooler ...)

in multi or single client ...

also MB/Cpu/Gpu have security who cant be change by a game : it wont frie until you change the settings, it will reset shutdown whatever but never frie

also how come that different people with similar setup have different state .... (problems/no problems)Rolling Eyes

current temp (stable over 3 hours) cpu 5core at 26 degree and 15% charge 1core at 30 degree at 25% charge Gpu 56 degree at 70% charge 200fps in space 35-50fps in CQ (also my temp are 2-3 degree cooler than before incarna ... weird)

( seen the Xbox360 faillure status ... i guess im just lucky .... i have no issue with mine or ... im just more cautious about cooling and airflow )

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.


well no ... since i run as said above a amd system *X6 not X4* (again same setup and *no problems/problems* ) the problem is elsewhere.

I have had my petition response, Obviously I am not allowed to post GM replies here but it wasn't a surprise.

This game is going to go down hill fast

if MT for non vanity item's happens / When it does I wont be playing any more, the game has already cost me Ģ250 for a new MB and CPU. Wink

This thread is so full of misconceptions and incorrect conclusions, I don't know where to start...

There is the "dangerous patch" guy a page or two back, thanks to him for putting a smile on my face this morning. :) I've heard Incarna referred to by many names, but "DANGEROUS!" is a first for me. Laughing

There are the "don't listen to the tech guru" people; sometimes a statement is just to idiotic to rebut. You are telling me to ignore the people with knowledge and experience, and listen to the people who are guessing, speculating, and assuming. Why don't you try thinking about that for a while... Rolling Eyes

I can understand how you might think Incarna killed your computer. Your computer died shortly after running the game, so it's reasonable to think that "I did A" and then "B happened" therefore "A must have caused B".

What you have to realize is that the system is much more complicated than that. The most likely explanation for your situation is that your computer had some underlying problem. There is no doubt that Incarna is substantially more taxing on computer hardware than any previous expansion; therefore this extra load likely aggravated what ever underlying issue you had causing the failure.

Let me give you a practical example. I have a hairline fracture in my tibia (leg bone) that has existed without my knowledge for sometime. I normally walk everywhere I go, and for years I've had no problems walking. One day I am late for the bus and I sprint to catch it. While sprinting, my leg breaks and I collapse to the ground. You would claim that running broke my leg, but in reality the hairline fracture is the culprit. Running just aggravated the underlying issue to failure.

TL;DR: You had some issue with your computer that you did not know about and that is the underlying cause of your computer failure.

In my experience, seemingly inexplicable computer failure of multiple components is usually caused by a shoddy PSU. You mention you reused your PSU, so I would be very interested to know if your next mobo/proc die too.

I can confirm CQ puts unusual load to CPU and most likely a memory bus. I have a quad-core system (AMD Athlon II X4) with 6G of memory and still one client with CQ enabled makes the whole machine laggy; there's plenty of CPU power left, plenty of memory, no disk activity... but still CQ enabled makes some other program stutter and lag. Disable CQ, all runs smooth.

So something is borked in CQ. I could live with each EVE taking one CPU core to 100% (which is what they do with CQ, some 40-55% of one core without it), but filling the buses with crap goes over the top.

Turn off CQ, run EVE, CPU stays around 45C, turn on CQ on one EVE and CPU climbs over 65C.

This being said, it's easy to disable it _and_ healthy system will not break under any kind of CPU load. But if you want me to re-enable it, you will need to tweak it a bit.

n.o. since i have 26 degree ( all core or like that) with or without CQ and i've tested and recorded data during 5hrs play

primary point ... why you think its the game who broke since ... i run quite similary setup in a crappy retail HP case with no tweak in cooling and have 20 degree lower temp than you .... also 60fps in CQ in interval immediate .... search the error elsewhere

(reminding Phenom II X6 1035T (95w tdp) psu 460w 80m plus, EVGA gtx 460 SC ( oc to a FTW level) 8gig ram, all on a 780g mobo ( with a 1.5tb HDD 7200rpm sata2 basic) cooling : one 80mm rear and generic amd cooler for cpu)(also switching my psu stored all my loose cable in 2 little tube wich enhance the innexistant cooling by 2 and 2xnothing its big, considering your "perfectly but not so" cooled setup)

The GTX 480's run hot, which is why I bought an aftermarket cooler for mine, mine never ran with the stock one as I had read several reviews stating this fact. So do yourself a favor, buy a aftermarket cooler for the 480, Zalman does an exceptional job. Will drop your temps by half if not more.

The bottom line is HEAT is electrical parts worst enemy. You want to take as much of it away as possible. Those stating that 'I only have 1 fan and I only go up to yadda, yadda, yadda..' Bottom line is if you had 4 fans correctly installed and more air pushing you would be running a lot cooler and therefore saving/extending the life of your products.

Also, the wrong or insufficient voltage from a PSU (power supply) in your PC can not only 'blow up' your pc it can also make components HOTTER. Do like I do, if your system requires a 500 watt PSU get a 700, and dont get Bob's Power Supply because it says its 1000 watts and its 39.99. Get a name brand, OCZ, Coolermaster, ETC, yea you will pay more, but ultimately it will perform 10x better.

PSU is the 1 component in a computer where 99% of people cheap out on. That is where I tend to start. Right now I am rocking a 1000 watt Coolermaster.

RMA your laptop. Assuming you have not tampered with the laptop and didn't violate the terms of the warranty, their product should be able to operate as advertised. It sounds like the cooling was unable to keep up while under high load (btw this is a fairly common issue).

In the future you may want to invest in a laptop cooler to help circulate air. It's fairly common for laptops to have heat issues (hence the market for laptop coolers), but most manufacturers bank on the fact that users rarely stress their hardware enough to run into issues.

On my laptop I have to clean it every 2 months or so.

Dust will collect in the CPU fan and prevent cooling.(Same goes with desktops.)

Clean it out and try it..

If you don't know how, take it to a tech.

It's cheap maintenance.

Also there are cooling pads for laptops you might want to look into.



Good luck.

I know that many will disagree, but I blame CQ as well.

Since I starting playing, updated to Incarna, my GPU/Computer as gone bananas. Clear signs of overheating, now
with permanent damage as it seems.

As I disclaimer, my CPU/GPU have run in 100% load maaany times before, with no problems what so ever. So there is something really wrong with Incarna, though not everyone seem to have this problem.

Well, now I canīt play my usual games either. ugh

First I want to say that I totally agree that currently the game is using allot more resources then it really should and the the GPU has to do way to much work. But I find it stupid to read that you yell that EVE damaged your GPU.

If you haven't overclocked or unlocked your card with extra pipes and you use a good cooler that their is no way your GPU has permanent damage. Standard GPU's (not modified) are made to run 100% stressed and even protected for being overheated, this would result to a total system crash.

So I find it very annoying to read that some say EVE damaged their GPU.

I remember similar complaints about StarCraft II, and having played that game as well I can easily see (or hear, in that case the graphics card's vent) why.

People complained that StarCraft II fried their systems as well, because they heated up during the cutscene sequences or the on-ship mission selection. I think these problems were similar to what we're facing here.

In short words, the graphics card and the processor are tasked with rendering a rather simple scene and have nothing else to do. Framerates go up, the complete rendering and memory access pipeline becomes stressed, components heat up.

The solution would be to impose a framerate limit, and I'm asking myself why something like that isn't part of the driver configuration - something like "maximum frame rate allowed"?

If that is the issue... their are some frame rate limiter programs for nVidia cards. Search on google :)

I can say that Iīve been building my own rigs since I was 13, so I am not new at computer components.
Also my GPU was not OCīd and had a better cooling installed on it other than the standard one. My GPU temp has never gone past 56-58 degrees, which is not much for a GPU.

I too have a hard time finding EVE the cause of this, but it really seems that thereīs something to it.

im Running on AMD 6950@6970 bios flash and overclocked 950 mhz, cpu amd phenom 2 6core 2800@3600 no temps problem, im playing on 1920x1080 max ccc settings 16x af 24x aa with edge detect high Quality mipmap etc. Gfx cpu all running cool all the time no problems at all.

using haf 932 high tower windtunnel :)
cpu cooled by Noctua ND-D14 , GFX stock cooling fanspeed 50% temps max 60 degrees with Vsync on because i dont need 300 fps ingame.

I always hate to hear of someone frying their puter parts, so my condolences go out to those individuals. I've been there, albeit years ago.
My current setup is an Msi GD70, 4gb OCZ ddr1600 1.9v @7.7.7, amd 1090t with Xigmatek HDT, and dual HD4980 which has been running stable as a rock for over 2 years. Eve heavily taxes my gpu temps without my fans manually set high enough to literally blow my hair back and annoy my next door neighbors. But that's ok because I don't like my neighbors and I usually wear headphones anyways.
I still play this game because it keeps growing and keeps getting better. With growing comes growing pains. In the past I've eaten a few video card receipts, and that can happen for any number of reasons. At least I know now to create a solid buffer between simple failure, and epic failure. You can't blame a software developer for hardware issues. That's why most of us test the heck out our systems before we run any new robust software, albeit out-of-box, or updates/expansions.

Clean the heating sinks on your cards if you haven't opened your case for awhile.

I have an overclocked 9800gtx and eve was the first game to overheat my card, temps rose up to 90 at which point graphics corrupted, took the card out and blew the cooling sink clean of dust, and now my card goes up to 73 under load in eve which is normal.
Was even higher with out of the box settings but i modified my cooling settings to set the fan usage/heat curve more agressive so it's keeps cooler idling and under load, but doesn't idle to noisily.

I'm running an HP Pavilion mated to an Nvidia 9800 GT. Prior to this update, I was able to run EVE with no issue. Now, if I run CQ, the video card's temperature climbs and climbs. So I had to turn CQ off.

Unfortunately, running in space itself actually runs my video card a few degrees hotter than before the update. Not so hot that I'm worried, but the card is now working harder that previously.


You could be a poster child for how not to setup a gaming computer.

You cannot buy some crap "Sunday Sale" "multi-media" computer, stick a high end graphics card in it and expect it to not fry at load.

I'm running an Alienware Aurora R3 with liguid cooling, and 875 watt power supply and wind tunnnels for my dual nividas.

I can 4 x CQ and the computer idles at 23-25 centegrade.

Now you know that Sunday special is no gaming computer ugh

Maybe not everyone has the money for a computer like you have? Maybe some people just want to play Eve and not buy a complete computer store?

Eve states the minimum requirements so if you have those it should work otherwise they could delete those requirements and put the text 'we don't know' in the place.
