Was playing fallout 4 at 1080p max settings. Got tired last night and laid down. Fell asleep for two hours. Game was left running that whole time.

I had it hooked up to my 1080p 60hz sony HDTV. Used nvidia inspector to limit fps to 60 (60 fps is all I need) and vsync on.

When I woke up gpu and cpu were both listed at 78 Celsius being the max temperature recorded according to gpu-z. Throttle stop used at -.125 for core and cache, max cpu performance and geforce 1070 card set to adaptive for power setting. Cpu fan was around 3800rpm and gpu fan was 4800rpm. Fan setting was at auto and shift mode was turbo.

Could I have done any permanent damage? If so I'm ok because I've only had the laptop a week so I could probably rma it and get a replacement. I did not buy an extended warranty.

Also is there a program I can use that uses very little resources where I can set it up to shutdown the computer in 30 minutes if I fall asleep again but would bring up a message to delay or cancel the shutdown?

Thank you very much

Well, you should be just fine,, temperatures rose because of constant gpu and cpu load especially with laptops it can usually lead to laptop heating up. Just try to not let this happen again.

Yeah thankfully the cpu and gpu didn't go above 78 which I hear is in the upper limits but just fine for temperature wise.

Yeah I try and usually only play really intense games like this for around 30 minutes give or take a few. That's why I freak out.


Yeah the fan running that high might not be great for the lifespan of the fan but better the fan wearing out than the gpu or cpu because fan would be cheaper and easier to replace. Dead cpu or gpu equals dead laptop.
