I've had Sacred 2 Gold for a while on Steam but only just started playing earlier last night. I had only played for approximately an hour before I noticed my GPU was running at 75C and my CPU cores were at 54-57C. Yes I know they are acceptable temp ranges but I don't even get those kind of GPU temps in Tom Clancy's GR: Wildlands or Hitman or The Witcher 3 and so on.
I played Wildlands for around 5 hours yesterday and my GPU only ever got to 69C and CPU to 53-55C. The last time I played The Witcher 3, I played for almost 8 hours straight and GPU was 68C and GPU 55C...what the hell is this game doing to make my system run so hot in such a short period of time?
Unlike previous rigs, I'm trying to keep GPU stress to a minimum to try and make this GPU last longer (last 3 cards only lasted just over a year cos I ran them ragged too often) so to have a game run it so hot, so quickly is worrying. Anyone know why this is?
