|So Skyrim makes my computer really hot, like really hot for some reason. In particular it makes the HDD really hot: 62C at its peak. I have the Samsung Spinpoint GB with a fair amount of air passing over it, it's not too much however it is something. I noticed a couple times when it gets to that really high point it will faintly whine, and after a little it starts really going. It's pretty load and high so I try to start it immediately by shutting down the game and fanning out the computer. I've used the S.M.A.R.T test and found no errors. What can I do to stop this? |
The other suspect is my motherboard (Asus M4N98TD EVO) temps are soaring also. It really doesn't make sense that they're getting up to 68C! Could that be the source of the whining?
