My PC shut down yesterday two times while playing PUBG, at both times I played the game over 100 minutes. I'm pretty sure that my PC overheated and shut itself off. My GPU is AMD R9 380 and CPU is AMD fx-8370. I'd like to know how to make my PC cooler so I would be able to play the game for a longer time.
Bug Description: Game is taxing processor and, to a lesser extent, the GPU resulting in a temperature related shutdown to prevent damage to hardware components. Even on lowest settings, the only improvement that is seen is a slightly extended amount of play time before thermal shutdown is triggered. In my individual case, CPU is triggering thermal shutdown, but based on rates of temperature increase, GPU would also do so, but is cooling itself slightly better than my CPU manages. Date Seen: 4-9-17 through 4-20-17 Server: NA - Production Server Troubleshooting Attempted: All settings except for draw distance were reduced to lowest settings, computer was opened up and compressed air was used to remove all dust, verified that all fans were spinning properly, installed a temperature monitor and monitored while using other programs to attempt to rule out possible hardware failure, computer was reseated to attempt to improve airflow, box fan was used to attempt to draw off excess heat, MSI Afterburner and Speedfan were installed and configured to set fans to maximum RPM prior to loading the game. None of them suceeded in preventing overheating to the point of thermal shutdown. This is the only application I have run into in the years since building this machine that has taxed my hardware to thermal shutdown. Other Information: The worst temperature spikes appear to occur in the initial lobby area prior to the game starting(seriously, get rid of it. It serves no point and needlessly stresses machines) and after dying while in spectator mode. Launch Options: No launch options are being used System Specifications: See attachments, I can provide further information if requested.
