    Ok, so I recently bought SC2 but I am scared to play it cause I have been hearing shit about graphics cards over heating... Any knowledge in this field would help.. I will use the menus frame-rate cap that Blizzard suggested, until they can find a proper quick fix...

    Oh and I don't play competitively online, so don't bother asking me to add you cause I likely won't...

    thats a lie...

    btw did you know that not all maps are meant to be played competively? there's a few starcraft party maps somewhere out there in the server list

    The original issue was that there was no FPS cap on some parts of the game (mainly the main screen I think). This caused some people to fry their cards. This is what i HEARD from a friend of mine. However this was a while back so i can only assume they patched the problem if it was indeed present.

    Well, only "overheating" problem you'll get is if you set the settings to too high. Fermi video cards (Nvidia gtx 4xx) series tend to have their temperatures clock in at over 90 as a norm.

    i doubt this to be true. Starcraft in general is a game to chill and it's a truth that most players play custom maps which aren't always competitive yet unusually fun. I played starcraft 1 for like 6 years lol some being csustom maps and top vs bottom and the game has so many modes youll eventually fine something fun.

    The graphics card overheating - false
