Platform: Alienware Aurora R9, dual NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 video cards
Do you have any mods? No
Please explain the issue is in as much detail as possible:
This issue only happens with Pathfinder: Kingmaker. All other games run with no problems. On launching game, the fans in my computer go into overdrive. One of the two NVIDIA graphics cards begins heating up quickly, going from ~36c to over 50c in about 15-20 seconds. On exiting the game, the fan returns to normal and the temperature drops back down.
I have tried reducing the graphic settings to lowest in-game but does not help. I’ve tried changing settings in NVIDIA Control Panel to limit the max frame rate to 60 fps because I’ve read some others had success with that, but does not help me.
Any other ideas to solve? Game is unplayable right now without potential damage to the computer. Again, reiterating that I play much bigger, much more graphic intensive games without this problem. It only happens with Pathfinder: Kingmaker, unfortunately.
