I have a problem with sandcastle when generating HTML Help 1x documentation. It's kind of weird and I am not even sure if others have encountered this.
My machine is an AMD Phenom X4 9650 with 2GB of RAM and a 1GB ATI Radeon 3650 graphics card. I have configured my BIOS to automatically shutdown the computer whenever the system and core temperature has reached 70 degress Celcius.
Whenever I build a documentation using Sandcastle Help File Builder I noticed that my CPU fan suddenly spins so fast and then goes back to normal. This happens thrice during the build process. On the third time, my system shuts down. The shutting down is
due to the fact that my core or system temp has gone above the normal operating temp (70 and above). I tried using DocProject in building the documentation and the same thing happens. This means that the problem is not with the UI used in the build process
but it is within Sandcastle itself. From what I remember, the problem occurs during the resolving of external/internal links at the Data\Reflection folder of Sandcastle.
This has left me dumbfounded because I am not a hardware type of guy and I find it kind of weird that a software such as Sandcastle would make the system/core temp go beyond the normal values. I ran graphics intensive apps such as Terragen, WinMorph, Orbiter
3D and Terragen 2 but the problem did not surfaced. Why is this with Sandcastle? Is the thread executing the Build process of Sandcastle causing this?
Any help would be appreciated.
