Has anyone else had a problem with the game overheating their computer? Im running an i5 4670 which idles at around 41 C ... and for the GPU an Nvidia GeForce GTX 770 that idles around 34 C

About a week ago I noticed my computer had been running really hot after exiting the game, so I put the game aside for a bit, downloaded a temp guage app and today i finally went back in to myst to find within a minute or so of being in game, those temperatures reached 65 C for the CPU and for the GPU 80 C, i have no idea how hot they got before i had downloaded that program, and had been in the game for at least 45 minutes maybe more when i had first noticed this problem and heard the fan drop in speed and put my hand on the case to find it was really hot.

My case has a couple of fans and holes in the top to let air out, (although no particularly special cooling system) the CPU is not overclocked and it has not been that intense on more graphic intense games. I notice when i alt-tab out of the game back to windows the temperatures drop as significantly quick as when they had rose in game.

Hopefully that didnt do any sort of damage when it was sure to have been hotter for longer, when i first noticed the problem.

This has been problem for several other people as well, Cyan has an update coming out that might fix the problem but it may still be good idea to let them know at their support site about it, it could help them better locate the source of the problem;

Okay thank you! I submitted a ticket on their site.

If you have other graphic-intensive programs, I would suggest giving them a spin and checking the temperatures. If they also spike, you might want to clean out the system case (canned air is useful for this) or check for a driver update. In any case, might want to clean the case anyway, really reduces temperatures.

its a pretty new PC and not dusty, i think it's got pretty good airflow, got a fan on the front that goes in, and a fan on the back that goes out, and its got a mesh shaped "grate" on the top for heat to rise out of. updating the drivers for the cpu and gpu?

CPU drivers shouldn't matter (and might not even exist). However, the graphics driver can sometimes be quite relevant to those sorts of problems, as I've seen in the Kerbal Space Program bugtracker.
