UnrealEngine$ make command creates multiple Clang++ processes running at 100%, overheating my computer forcing shutdown

I’m using Ubuntu 18.04.1 LTS 64-bit
Memory: 15,6 GiB
Processor: AMD Fx-8350 8-core
Graphics: GeForce GTX 660 Ti/PCIe/SSE2
Gnome: 3.28.2

Following the process for Linux, after running make, my computer heats up quickly and forces a shutdown before ten minutes are up, There appears to be a Clang++ process for each core running at close to 100%.

As these processes are generated automatically, I cannot seem to strangle them fast enough.

Anyone else have this issue/ a fix?

Happy to provide more information.

You can edit LocalExecutor.cs / GetMaxActionsToExecuteInParallel() and limit the number of cores used. However, it seems that your PC is not able to run at full speed without overheating - which is a problem with your setup.

Thanks a lot. You’re embarrassingly right. That’s what happens when you blame everyone else first!

Seem to have turned off a fan or two too many when trying to make my computer quieter. Everything appears to be running fine now. Sort of solution I possibly should have figured out myself!
