Hi people, so yesterday I went on a gaming binge (CS:GO) ... the only think I changed was adding these 2 values to my autoexec.cfg file in the game folder:
This basically limits the maximum frames that will be drawn. With my super old CPU I am unable to ever get 300 fps in game anyways. Only a scoreboard, game menu or if I'm in the gaming lobby (but not in a game) will I see values like 600 fps - with the above lines added it is now capped to 300.
I found after applying this limit I was able to play the whole day without any issues. I will update this thread again if the issue ever appears again.
Consider limiting your max fps to something slightly higher than you have seen your computer run in game. The only thing I can think of is having cs:go pinned to 600 fps may not be a good idea (this is just a theory).
I know this is really premature but it looks promising.
