    FSLabs A320 absolutely smashing my CPU!

    You can download prime95 and do a full-heat calculation job to see if it can handle it. But I had the 100 on my i7 3770k and it did a very well job. I have the 60i on my current ryzen and it does a very good job. Maybe just try the prime95 thing and let it do a 2h job or so to see if it overheats. This is how it looks for me in the bus (66° C as per amd Radeon software on the temps of the CPU): I can't see any anomalies here. Kind regards, Stefan

    Update progress like a snail.

    It's worth keeping an eye on some of Lefteris's posts, which will help to answer your queries. The release of 5.2 means that FSLabs want to make sure the update runs well in it. Also, the general forum really isn't for posts like this. There's a General Discussion sub-forum here that is better suited: General Discussion - Flight Sim Labs Forums

    FS Spotlight - Not Working

    Are you using Spotlights v2.0.0.15? The v5.x.x.x versions of Spotlight are for P3Dv5 only--AFAIK they are not backwards-compatible with P3D v4.x Also, are you running a shader mod like PTA or Tomatoshade?

    Update progress like a snail.

    Jokes aside, it's not as simple as it seems. The FSL bus is highly complex so I'd assume it's not a matter of changing a little value here and there and calling it a day like with most other addons. They probably want to release it as much as we want to get the update. But life ain't simple and such complexity demands testing, therefore, lengthening the wait just a little bit. It's not like we can't fly the airplane in the meantime. The dead map is easily countered by using volanta webapp or simaware. And staying on 5.1 for a while won't kill you. Putting pressure on them does no good. W

    FSLabs A320 absolutely smashing my CPU!

    Unfortunately the cooling system is aftermarket Corsair liquid cooled block and it does a fantastic job on everything else I do on the PC, it is only the airbus that pushes it, I will clarify that the computer can handle these temps they are just alarmingly high compared to anything else or any other software or games I put the system through.

    Crew rest time

    Crew have a maximum duty time of nine hours according to the American FAA, (Not sure about the rest of the world) and 8 hours at night, and duty time includes time spent on the ground. A320s spend between 1-2 hours on the ground at mainline carriers, so I imagine the crew would certainly be above their maximum duty time on a four hour flight.

    Crew rest time

    Hey there my friends, i don't know if this is the right site to ask but here it goes, so, i basically fly 100% of my flights with Lufthansa in P3D, now I've noticed they do some interesting and nice routes with their A320 family like to Cairo and Tenerife, my question is, since these flights take almost 4 hours each, I'd like to know if the crew returns with the aircraft to the base or would stay one day at the destination? Very interesting is this flight LH584/585 which departs Frankfurt at like 10PM and lands back there at almost 8AM the next day, with a turn aro

    P3D v. 5.2 is out

    I hope not, the SATCOM issue needs to be resolved among other things.

    P3D v. 5.2 is out

    I wonder if the FSLabs update will be delayed as it appears Lockheed Martin is working on some fixes for 5.2.

    P3D v5.2

    Hi, Just need clarification, I download the FSLabs_A320X_P3D_v5.0.1.160 and installed on the P3D V5.2 last night. On loading the aircraft it says it's not compatible with this version of P3D. Pls advise. Thanks Vipan

    FSLabs A320 absolutely smashing my CPU!

    Oh Hyperthreading is not useful for P3D? I have no problems since changing to amd ryzen 5 (had an i7 3770k before) and my usage is not at 100% at any time. But I thought HT might be useful as it is in other games (namely GTA5 I tested it). Anyway if you need some vbox machines it is a nogo to turn it off. But as I said... I really have no problems with the fslabs bus. Indeed the VC fps is not hight enough I think (switched to 60fps but it is not smooth). But as Markus said, if you have cooling problems you really should switch the cooling device because the CPU will also downclock to

    FSLabs A320 absolutely smashing my CPU!

    Markus is right. I have moved to an i7 8700k from my overclocked i5 9600k and had the same issue. You are having two major problems: The i7 8700k has an extremly bad designed (or connected) heatspreader. Most user replace the heatspreader with a delidding tool and add a new heat paste. I did it as well, because I had the same temperature problems like you. The replacement took me 15 minutes and the cpu headspreader connection paste needed to temper for some hours. Brought me 10-15°C cooler CPU temps. As Markus said, Hyperthreading is a major problem in this case. I have disabl

    How to setup TCA Quadrant v151

    Got the quadrant working perfectly. Steps: 1. Install drivers. Update with latest firmware. 2. delete file listed this thread. On restarting prepar3d v5, I got a pop up saying it was detected and if I want to enable. At this point idle thrust is about 70% thrust. But buttons work fine. 3. Do the calibration as listed on thrustmaster site. Pay attention to when to be plugged in and when not. 4. Load up the A320 and set detent zones in the FMC config page for controls->thrust levers. Note need to change settings to 'two levers' and 'rev on stick'. Setting detent zo

    FSLabs A320 absolutely smashing my CPU!

    Indeed our product can use quite a bit of CPU power, for the simple reason that next to running the base flight simulator itself, it also needs to run simulated Airbus computers on top of it. I would argue that any PC cooling not able to handle 100% CPU usage during Winter time is indeed not powerful enough and should be changed/enhanced to be on the safe side. Having said that, you will be able to lower temperatures if you disable Hyper Threading in your BIOS. It is not something that is useful for P3D, so unless you need it for a specific software optimised for it, we suggest turning i

    new way of p3d installation

    If you want to update all three components anyway you can simply remove Prepar3D v5 Academic from "Add/remove programs" and then just regularly install it again with the Setup_Prepar3D.exe from the full P3D download file. This worked perfectly fine for me, and its much less clicking work.

    New winglet design from Airbus

    Those spiroids have been tested on a Falcon 50. It is an interesting development. Airbus was testing a "Swanlet" so they had problems with structures due to higher loads, so they closed the swanlet with the s shape to create a spiroid. Just some history folks. Cheers
