XFX HD-687A-ZHFC Radeon HD 6870 1GB 256-Bit GDDR5 (HD-687A-ZHFC)
hello, i have a two part question;
part 1: is this a common problem? i can play around with ue4 for about 2 hours & then my screen goes blank & the system shuts down automatically. this has happened to me in the past, with the same card, before i sent it back to the manufacturer & they cleaned it (which i do myself now)
at that time i determined that the fan wasn’t working at all. yesterday i took the card apart & put a drop of machine oil in the fan motor. it seems to be working fine now, but apparently not well enough to keep the card cool while running ue4.
part 2: is there a way to ‘streamline’ the projects within their folders so that ue4 doesn’t need to load so much into ram? what i’m thinking is that you could possibly delete some of the unused files in the texture folder & maybe increase performance a bit.
also, the editor seems to spend a great deal of time compiling shaders. is there a way to disable that feature & only use my own props & shaders?
