Hey everyone. Today I had an idea that was a big solution to a problem I had. I’m a computer snob, so having a high refresh rate (smooth) experience is a necessity for me. I always had “limit framerate” turned on in my settings, and whenever I turned it off my phone would thermal throttle (slow down to reduce temperatures.) and sometimes crash. Today I found a solution.
I have my silicon ice pack inside a sealed plastic bag with my phone resting on it.
Before you say “but Pie that’s a terrible idea.” It isn’t, and let me explain why.
- the phone does not experience stress from being hot to going cold. I always put it on the ice pack at room temperature and then let it warm up by running IF.
- there is no chance of water getting inside the phone either, since the bag is sealed.
And let me tell you, with Limit FPS turned off- IF is a completely different experience. Looking around the cockpit is incredible, especially In the A-10.
I’d definitely recommend doing this, as long as you make sure your bag is sealed and you put your device on the pack before starting if so you don’t hurt anything in the device through heat fluctuation stress.
What do you think? Is this a good a bad idea?
