Getting snake bit by shitty AMD drivers again.  BF1 just kept rebooting my machine when the temps hit 80 C.  I know from ARK this card can run at 90 C and not care.   These drivers i installed a week ago and i see there is already another version.  Installed those and now bf1 was running at 90C and after 30 mins creeps up to 95C and reboots.  POS AMD.

 

although this thread has been boring lately,  ill save the endless cooling discussion.  The card is a 390X,  they are small space heaters.   I have the fans on the card cranked up with msi afterburner.   The card is in a full tower Coolermaster HAF case (High Air Flow).  Fans are all running.  Ive looked into water cooling but im not going to drop $2 bills on a water block for a $300 card. 

Is there any way in your video card's software and/or Windows software to tell the PC to use less percentage of power or to stop producing anymore power once you hit a certain number of degrees for your GPU?

 

I know this can be done w/ my laptop via Windows for my CPU, as I had to limit the CPU's power so it would stop the CPU from being in the 80-100 degrees Celsuis range + from also trying to cook me a bacon & scrambled eggs.

dragonfall has Steam Workshop support.  GoG version is .. not recommended unless u got someone dumb enough or just want to get the GoG version for collection purpose

Why does it have to be "or"?

Why can't it be both reasons altogether?

are GOG keys worth anything? I got a key for Shadowrun: Dragonfall - Director's cut thats collecting dust. would like to give it away around x-mas time or at least trade it for something else (i already own it on steam & gog).

Depends on who you talk to. 

 

I think most here on CAG especially in this thread prefer Steam. As a service, it's Light Years better than every other service (GOG, UPlay, Origin, etc) on PC.

 

Though, personally - I also really love the "No DRM" attitude that comes w/ GoG.

 

I already have Dragonfall DC on Steam + DRM-Free download from HB, BTW.

My blurriness is usually caused by non-AA methods. 

If one has enough performance + power, one can always double-up on the AA.

 

Mix in-game TXAA + video card's software Control Panel FXAA or use other AA methods (MSAA, if you have the power), set it to "Enhance" each other.

 

That can help to try to get rid of the blur, Vaseline-look, and smearing-look that comes when only using TXAA.
