    I was very disappointed to find our that Overcooked 2 is only 30fps.. It kind of sucks to play at 30fps.

    found this mod/OC : https://gbatemp.net/threads/overcooked-2-60-fps-mod.545814/

    how safe is it to play at OC speed when docked? will it overheat? is there overheat protection on the switch that will auto throttle it?

    OC is completely safe because you aren't really overclocking. The ic is binned to run at higher speeds but nintendo downclocks it for battery life.

    so there's no risk of overheating the console? when docked, the switch does not seem to be a king at keeping the heat away... it gets quite hot (at stock speed, haven't OC yet)

    depends on the game imo, my Switch reached close to 70 degrees in Crysis remastered with full clock. Meanwhile in Hyrule Warriors the hight I got was around 63 degrees.
    these numbers are with a modded dock with more ventilation.

    I've tried OC during handheld (gpu to 537mhz and ram to 1600 mhz) and the temps were fine, cant remember exactly but around 50 degrees celsius and my fan wasn't running too fast either

    My switch is docked but in a third party one. The fan goes high when I play Ryza since I overclocked a lot for smoother loading times. But it never seem to go over 75c

    what is the max safe temp? which third party dock do you use? there's no risk of bricking with third party dock now?

    It will shutdown before it breaks. My cooling is also different from normal switch since I put mx4 on it instead of the standard.

    Yeah as long as they support PD it should be fine!

    I don't think Nintendo ever addressed that issue so try to avoid using third-party docks. I mean docks can't be that expensive can they?

    Really? Did you buy your Switch used without a dock? That's the only scenario I can imagine one wouldn't normally own a dock.

    the idea was to have one dock downstairs and one dock upstairs... but the official dock is damn overpriced

    edit: I did bought my switch used... thank god I bought it before the the switch's prices going insane
