This is outside of my technical knowledge (as most things are) so I post the question here hoping someone can provide some insight. I also posted this in the Thea forum
When my computer is rendering in Thea, it often hits 90 to 95% on the CPU temperature gauge. When I’m rendering in Cinema 4D it regularly drifts into the red zone of 100%.
Is there anyway to limit this, to tell the computer to only use a certain amount of resources while rendering? I would accept longer render times to avoid a burnt out CPU.
I can set the Core Temp program I’m using to provide overheat protection but I think that just shuts the program down or puts the computer to sleep. I want to keep rendering but using less resources so I’m not overheating.
Thanks for any advice you can offer.
