    I been enjoying my X3 V3 for gaming . I installed StarCraft 2 and ran in ultra setting running 1920 x 1080. I was running fine then as i had more things on the screen it started to stutter and creep to an unplayable frame rate. Dropping the setting to moderate helped. I was surprised that the X3 Plus with tne new Nvidia 9xx card couldn't handle a game that's a few years old.

    Blizzard games are always more CPU intensive. I would check your temperatures.

    Temps are never above 72 C for GPU and 75 C for CPU

    You sure it's launching using NVIDIA and not Intel?

    Thats how I have it set and been able to keep my temps low. Open to any other suggestions though.

    ummm id say reinstall drivers but honestly no idea about that game from any experience really. i just didnt expect it to choke on that game when i strained my card and it was fine besides one hiccup that was the games fault.

    Hi Neptune, is there a way to tell which card is being loaded for a game? My star citizen is very choppy, not sure which card is being used.
    Thanks!
