Topic: someone is claiming overheating is causing botw framerate drops

Posts 21 to 23 of 23


@Heavyarms55 my room is all ac with a ceiling fan.68° or switch mainly only gets warm while its charging and playing..then it gets pretty dang toasty.

I just rigged up a very small 5v fan(maybe 20mm or less),wired it to usb and taped on the back of the dock on the vent.went back to a spot with the drops and they still were there.

Also another place i really see them at are while in a tree and when the camera pans down and you have a clear view of link omg the fps drops bad,pan out to where all you can see are the Leafs and it goes away.

Idk maybe its just a poorly Optimized game.



@talclipse No, this sounds more like there is something wrong with the Switch, your Switch. If this was a consistent problem there would be a lot more people talking about it. BotW is not exactly an obscure game on the system.

My first Switch had framerate issues everywhere. Turns out the fan was faulty and eventually died while I was playing Odyssey. The card slot wouldn't always read games either, and kicked me out of games with a card removed error often.

Replacement doesn't have any of these issues.

In the darkness is the light.
