My BIOS is set to turn my computer off if the CPU temperature surpasses 70 degrees celsius. This has never actually happened since I've owned it until now, I've never overclocked it or anything. It's an Athlon x2 and it can handle any modern games I've installed with no problems, but within the first hour of playing Incarna my computer overheated and turned itself off 3 times. I had already disabled CQ within the first 10 minutes, like everyone else, so I don't think that was the problem. After the 2nd overheat I set my graphics preset to performance and it seemed fine after that. Then suddenly my computer shut off again while my uninsured new ship was being warp jammed in a lvl4.

So after all that I visit the website to see whats going on and read about how everyone else's processors and graphics cards overheated, how CCP lied to everyone and then blogged about how they don't give a sh*t what the players want and they aren't going to fix anything, and then some ridiculous line about how wearing $1000 jeans will make me the coolest person ever. What the f*ck is going on, just fix the god damn game and reimburse me for the ship I lost due to your complete inability to do anything right.

In general it shouldn't be possible for a processor to overheat at 100% load as long as there's sufficient cooling. How about trying to clean your CPU fan etc. first and then trying again? EVE can heat up your PC components (especially GPU/CPU) but by design it shouldn't be possible to overheat that way.

I remember my graphics card fan going to 100% every time I used EVE in fullscreen mode. Cleaned the fans (GPU and CPU) and now everything stays cool again, no matter how long I'm in EVE, fullscreen or windowed.

Why are people still denying that this happens? CCP even made a post acknowledging this issue. There's no f*cking dust in my cpu fan please stop pretending to be a computer technician.

You were having PC problems, you undocked in a new un-inusred ship and went missioning.
You have had your PC a while, you have not maintained it.

Open it up, clean the fans; apply fresh thermal compound.

If you dont know how to do this, well, its kinda like owning a car and not knowing how to check the oil, or change a flat. if thats the case take it to a computer repair shop.

The crashes are co-incidental with the recent release. If your spiking to 70 under load then its down to poor cooling.

There's been several people who had this same exact problem, you have no clue how often I clean my computer, it's obviously not a coincidence, please stop going to ridiculous lengths to troll and/or defend this sh*tty game.

It can happen in combination with faulty drivers (there have been issues with Starcraft II and Nvidia cards last year) but it's not that easy to get a properly cooled CPU/GPU to overheat and die.

If this game is ****ty quit instead of asking for 100 mill isks which, obviously, are useless considering it's a virtual currency only useable in this ****ty game which you are going to quit because it's ****ty.

HERES AN IDEA
Instead of crying down our ears, Go spend your next months PLEX money on some better hardware, Its not CCP's fault that your computer sucks monkey ass.

Please stop making your hilarious attempts to deny a known fact about this expansion.

Known fact is, That youre most likely using stock cooling on an already heavily obsolete processor, You probably dont have a GPU either.

Go buy something better, Or at least some better cooling (which would most likely cost more than that rustbucket that youre on atm)

70 degrees Celsius bad? My Core 2 duo has been doing 76 degrees Celsius for 4 years almost 24/7 - the pretty blue fan is my nightlight. could be the processor (?). idk.

Anyone who defends Incarna or CCP right now either is trolling. No matter what you say, they will have some stupid explanation.

Normal person: "Incarna crashed my computer"
Troll: "That's not possible, your cat must have unplugged it"

Inappropriate comment removed. Zymurgist

No they arent, Youre just jumping on a bandwagon, because youre asshurt and lack anything to do.

Seriously, In Jita and rens last night my processor didnt even reach 35 Degrees (And I have a 20 buck cooler)

Stop crying, Stop being mad over nothing, Think for yourself, Go buy some new hardware and THEN when **** happens you can complain.

People with brand new gaming rigs are having the same problem, please sh*t your stupid mouth you are obviously trolling and have no idea what you're talking about.

Also good luck trying to be taken seriously with a stupid troll signature.

OH LOOK
LOOK WHO HAS A BRAND NEW GAMING RIG THAT THEY BUILT THEMSELVES?
MAYBE THATS ME
MAYBE I HAVE A NEW PROCESSOR AND BRAND NEW HARDWARE?
Yes,
I do
Now **** off crying before you FORCE me to post my system specs and make your PC look like a 10 year old mobile phone.

Does the motherboard issue warning beeps before the shutdown, does the temp show high in the BIOS after a restart. Do you have a temp monitor to confirm its the CPU overheating?

What GFX card are you running? which driver version? which OS?

Brand and Wattage on the PSU? How old is the PSU?

So you overclocked...

I got only a few words for that: You asked for this!
And then the final 2 (and these are really important for OC'ing): BIGGER HEATSINK!

Noticed nothing like this on my I7 rig at all. I did check CPU usage and temps on all 4 cores and it was under 35C mostly with hardly any usage. Even in the Jita demonstration last night and into this morning and just before DT the CPU was under 40C with 1500 people in local, not even breaking a sweat.

Simply put :

Your having hardware failure, plain and simple.

My guess is that your PSU is actually failing, It happened to me last week. Simple fix buy another :)

Can I ask how do you know its temp related on the CPU? Are you using coretemp to check? or are you assuming that because its set in bios to shut off that that's what its doing therefore the cause of the problem?

Very seriously Im betting on PSU.

Yes, there a lots of people having problems with their hardware, but there are also lots more people who aren't. One of the ****ty things about devloping hardware for PC's is that different combinations of hardware can bring up unique and unpredictable bugs. You may have the best hardware in the world, but if you happen to have an unlucky mix of components, things are gonna go wrong. The best way to get it fixed is to submit a bug report to CCP along with a diagnostic run of your machine.

Instructions

This is the best way to get it fixed as soon as possible.
