I hope there’s some Threadripper expert here who can help me figure this out.
I’m getting high temperature and lot of noise every time I render with Arnold or I use the IPR. Same goes for the C4D Standard render when I use the interactive render region. Someone told me below 95degree the temperature is normal.
Now, I wonder if anyone here has some familiarity with Alienware PCs, because that’s the one I’m using (area 51 R-3). I tried one of the utilities that come pre-installed from Dell, the support Assist, which has a scan hardware option and I guess what it does is a stress test. When I run the test, the fan went so crazy I thought that the PC was going to explode!
Temperatures were rising fast, way above 100 degrees. I think I stopped it around 108 degrees as it seemed it would keep rising.
Anyway, if anyone knows Alienware and how to optimize it in order to get the best performance from this machine, I’d really appreciate some tips.
There is also a Command Center where I can fine-tune some of the settings in order to improve the performance, but after some tweaking, I didn’t notice any significant change and I went back to the original settings.
I really want to use this machine at its best, but it’s kinda annoying hearing all the noise.
Now I’m realizing the temperature remains high even when I do AE renders.
