Program problem? Neh. My computer was on fire. All these was from the loading Character Screen.

In game right now I am in Republic Fleet running at 79-82c, 50-90% GPU usage, and 80% fan speed.

I'm not sure what was going on in the Character menu, but I just wanted you guys to hear about this.

That sounds an awful lot like it was stuck on a screen it could reproduce really REALLY fast. Like multiples of hundreds of frames per second. It's what the maxfps command in WoW is for, keeping it from overheating on simple things.

As a test, someone who can get in, see what fps you get on the char screen vs in game?
