Konstantin Fomenko, there has been a lot of concern from some people about overheating issues. Some of us chatted about it in another thread, but I figured I would bring it here since you replied to this one. I personally have noticed abnormal temperatures from my graphics cards. It really does make me uncomfortable when I see my graphics card pushed to extreme temperatures. Mainly because I don't have the money to afford a new card or PC. I assumed it was because I had an older PC. Then I realized that Dawn of Fantasy is the first game that ever pushed my cards this hard. However, then I started to see other people on these forums express their concerns about this as well. I mean, maybe it could be our computer, but this is the only game that it happens with, for me at least. I've played some heavy graphical intensive videos games with this PC. Now the highest I have seen those games push my card was maybe about 70C to 75C. Which isn't too bad considering the age of my card and the fact that my cards tend to run a little hotter then normal. (8800 GT are my cards) Dawn of Fantasy pushes my cards upwards to 90C to 93C. That is cutting it way too close to the limit on my card, which I do believe to be 100C. Especially for a game that isn't the top of the line in terms of graphics.

I just wanted to hear your take on this issue. Is it something you can improve on your end? I do remember Starcraft 2 had the same problem when it first launched. Blizzard stepped up and said it was their game and they fixed it. I believe their problem was that the FPS on their game wasn't being capped. So the higher your FPS went, the hotter your card got because it was working extra hard. I do hope this is something you guys can fix and I do hope you touch on this subject soon.
70-75 is very good 90C 93C is ouch...Are you on a laptop? (dual core?). The only thing I'd suggest is change your GPU compound because laptops are designed to limit their capabilities with dumb cooling systems (1 cooling system for both CPU and GPU). The only laptop that could almost run MMORPGs without any problems I've seen was a quad core with 1024 nvidia in it.

Even games as nicely designed graphically as LOTRO (technically; in terms of smart mapping / texture compression / use of billboards / mip maps / low poly budget) choke on PVP with over 20 characters involved unless you sport brand new PC. I used to PVP with very low settings. Now imagine hundreds of units involved like in DoF. I don't think developers have done such a bad job in terms of graphics.

Well it's a pain I admit. Although I don't think graphics wise they've done a bad job I do suggest optional graphics settings so even the low end players can enjoy the game without getting a stroke this way securing a bigger audience / player base. I believe it will come in time.

I'd check that compound anyway Obscured because you're gonna fry a decent PC. If you game a lot it dries real fast.

EDIT: It sounds dumb I know but your GPU isn't getting any cooling because there's no heat transfer just dried up cement.

I have the graphics turned to the lowest settings on this game. It just doesn't make sense why this is the only game that does this to my PC. Even battlefield 3 beta didn't run my cards this hot. I played that on medium settings. Also, what exactly do you mean by compound?

Edit: Oh you mean thermal paste? I have no clue how to check that or how to put new on.

Look around I'm sure there's more on the Net:

It's a simple DIY job just make sure you don't splatter the microchip. Just change your GPU compound for starters (your CPU should be okay). You can get a tube for 10 GBP or ask at your local PC repair shop they should give you some for free.

I have to disagree. His card is probably not getting any cooling because of the dried up paste. It's a routine procedure especially if you use your graphics very often (gaming or even photoshop). My laptop (which is a dual with a similar card to his (older type) was getting better temperature results than his and...I have a single cooling system and this laptop is at least 2 years old).
