Troubleshooting Question

Audacity is causing fan to come on

Last Modified: 2021-03-09
I have a pretty advanced 8-core processor and am stunned my PC has trouble recording...the fan noise cause me not to be able to record...

I bought WavePad (NCH Software) and had the same problem with MP3 output. When I switch to AVI, it stopped the fan from coming on. But, I prefer using Audacity.

Is there some quality reduction I can make in the settings?
