SAPS definitely increases CPU power, and therefore heat. Get a third party cooler (if a desktop machine), or a USB cooling pad with fans if a laptop. I ditched my silent grafix card which only had a heatsink, and added one with 2 fans.
I was hitting 70 deg with SAPS, AND 35 TO 40 WITHOUT! Now it averages around 50, maybe 55 with SAPS, if its a warm day outside, so its a significant drop in temp to have mre airflow and proper cooling in the case. I put a small hole in the wall for cabling so i could move my i7 pc to the adjacent room which means i can record with LDC’s with NO loud PC fans having a party in the background.
With the Pending C7 release, i noticed the SAPS has been removed from preferences. Although the prefs page in C6.5 says to go to the knowledge base for more info on SAPS, this info is not anywhere to be found.
Can anyone describe exactly what the SAPS does in detail? (what it turns on and off?).
When i engage SAPS, it also greatly reduces the noise (hums and guitar related pc noise), so i will miss it.
