  • Valve warns of too high temperatures for the Steam Deck.
  • The optimum temperature for the Valve handheld is between 0° and 35° Celsius.
  • In the event of heat, performance problems or even an emergency shutdown may occur.

Hot summer does not only affect people but also devices and even though the Steam Deck can withstand some temperatures, the Valve handheld is not made for too hot days.

After Nintendo issued a heat warning for the Switch, Valve also issued a warning.

According to a tweet from Valve, the best temperature for the Steam Deck is between 0° and 35° Celsius. But you can also play with the portable hybrid, but you have to be prepared for performance issues.

If the Steam Deck gets too hot, it will shut down to protect itself. However, if you want to be sure that the Valve handheld will not be damaged by high temperatures, you should take a look at our console heating tips.

Handhelds, smartphones, and tablets can still be easily protected from overheating, but the situation is different for PCs. We’ll tell you how to avoid heat buildup in your computers.
