Console Cooling Fans are Louder when Running Augment3d

Symptoms

When running Augment3d natively on a tab, my console's cooling fans spin faster and louder than normal.

Explanation of Issue

Augment3d is a very graphics intensive process. The Graphical Processing Unit (GPU) will heat up when it is doing more calculations and trigger the cooling fans in the console to also ramp up to dissipate the additional heat.

Solutions

  1. Close the Augment3d tab if it is not in use.
  2. Reduce the Quality settings and/or the number of objects in the Augment3d model.
  3. Connect an external computer and run Augment3d in Tether mode
