iMac retina overheat with IntelliJ 15

Answered

Hi,

Since I updated to IntelliJ 15 on a 5k IMac late 2014 (core i7 - 4 GHz - 16 GO RAM - OSX 10.11.3),

the fan of my computer is going crazy every time I use the editor with a flex mobile project (especially during scrolling).

Is there a way to configure IntelliJ so the CPU (or the GPU ?) is less stressed ?

Thank you.

Please try 16 EAP. If it doesn't help, see if running IDEA 15 on Apple Java 1.6 works better for you.

If you are using stock Oracle JDK to run IDEA (instead of the bundled Java or Apple Java 1.6), it may force the use of the discrete graphics adapter.

Hi Serge,

It seems after switching to Apple Java 1.6 that the CPU is much less stressed than with the bundled jdk.

Thank you.
