will this hurt my laptop ?
#1
Hi guys

I'm currently playing Radiata Stories using PCSX2

at the beginning the events were slow and the game play wasn't that good either so i did the following , FrameSkipping > Constant Skipping > Frames to draw :1 , Frame to skip : 2 , then my FPS increased to about 80 which is good but my laptop's fan started running faster (obviously)

my question is , would that hurt my laptop on the long run ?
like if i play for around 2-3 hrs a day

thanks

PCSX2 Produces a lot of heat on Laptops so fan will obviously start rotating faster. Get a Cooling PAD better. I would not reccomend pcsx2 for laptop users generally.

I don't think it will damage your Laptop right now.

definetely would reccommend a cooling pad, for anywhere between 20-40 $ you can pick up a pad to sit underneath the lappy with vents and a fan to pump some extra cool air into it

My Chinese one costs $5. Generally the temperature decreases 3 - 5 degree Celcius.

Depends on exactly how hot your laptop's components get.

Have you or do you ever monitored the temps when playing?
You ever check back on those temps after ~30 minutes to an hour?

It's not eally a big deal if it feels hot to you;
These things are made to run in and withstand a good amount of heat.
To be anymore precise, we need those numbers..! Wink

thanks for the help guys

I'll get the cooling pad

@Rezard

actually only the left side of the laptop gets hot (cuz that's where the fan is)
it doesn't really feel that hot but i get worried cuz my warranty will end after few weeks.
how do i measure the temp ?

If it doesn't even feel hot to you,
odss are it's ok.

But you should make sure. Smile

Use a program like HWMonitor or CoreTemp to check the temps of your hardware.
The processor may be your biggest concern.
See how hot it is after emulating for ~an hour.
The programs have a record of how hot the core(s) got.
