I´m running a server on my old gaming PC. On it i have a plex media server installation.
Here comes the trouble. When transcoding movies all my CPU cores gets maxed out (all 8, 4 physical cores with HT).
CPU: Intel Core i7 4790K
MB: Asus Maximus Hero VII
Cooling: Corsair Hydro H100i
My server crashes due to the temperatures getting around 100-103 degrees celsius.
Do i have some setting wrong or should i just invest in better cooling.
The server idle temp are around 40-50 deg celsius.
Why are the transcoding taking so much processing power for just one file?
