Quote from: bertie97 on February 16, 2014, 08:46:25 AMThis looks like an old but relevant thread...Just upgraded the rig with an AMD FX-8350 & decided to see what it was like with Handbrake.As I have a stock HSF I was interested to see all 8 cores hammered at 99.x % for the duration of the encode.This took the CPU within a few degrees of it's top limit temp. This is OK right now with low ambient temps, but could really be an issue when summer gets here.Started thinking about 'Hard-Throttle', but the docs don't tell me much about what it is doing & it is flagged with warnings.Currently I opted for limiting the available cores via PL - not so great for speed of encode, but better than a cooked CPU.This instantly takes 10C off the CPU temp, so yaaay for PL (again).I would like to know something about 'Hard-Throttle' if anyones willing. My aim is not system responsiveness but temp control untill I get a hi-grade HSF...
