I just bought the game last night, and so far I'm loving it, but I have a major concern. I've never seen GPU temps as high as I have in FF14 in any other game so far, and I'm even seeing frame rates drop below 60FPS sometimes. Exactly what are the recommended requirements for this game? In Gridania, with a few people around my FPS dropped to 45 and my GPU was at 82c, which is about 10c hotter than I've ever seen it. Is there some issue with max settings, or something I don't know about? I -just- built this system early last month, and correct me if I'm wrong, didn't this come out in 2010?
Intel i7-3770k @ 3.5Ghz (Overclocked to 4.5Ghz with Corsair H-100 water cooling)
32GB G-Skill Ripjaws 1600Mhz DDR3 RAM
Geforce GTX 670 4GB (Overclocked to 1325mhz boost clock)
Crucial M4 Solid State Drive - 256GB
Windows 7 64 Ultimate
82c isn't going to fry the card or anything, since the rated max temp is 97c, but I have fan curves set to kick in 100% at 79c, and I have never seen a game continue to put such a strain on the GPU. I'm also worried because I haven't been in big groups yet, or seen a lot of particle effects.
For reference, I ran the benchmark test which scored me an 8893, which according to something I found says I should have no trouble on max settings? Please advise, thank you! =)
