  • Using Tobi's cam causes much more stress on my GPU.

    Hi everyone,

    When I watch games, my gpu doesn't overheat and there's not much activity going on.
    When I watch the Defense games with Tobi's perspective, my GPU starts ramping up the heat as if I'm playing the game. And since it's the summer and my room gets very hot, my PC sometimes crashes completely if I use Tobi's cam.

    Is there any way to reduce the amount of GPU strain from using Tobi's view? Free camera, Directed, etc all work fine.

        I'm on a Core 2 Duo @ 3.2GHz, 4GB of Mushkin XP DDR2 @ 1066MHz, and a Radeon 4850. The card heats up pretty bad normally but I never crashed from it overheating until Dota 2 (not even CS:GO or Crysis).
