I would check your temps. Reply to logainofhades m 0 l irontrooper March 17, 2014 1:04:41 PM You should post your whole build first, then we could see if there's any obvious issue. I would suggest that you play the game and follow the temperatures, and listen for any obvious noise if any fans go spinning crazy to try cool something down.

If it starts out high and then drops it sounds like CPU and GPU heat saturation inside your case. You may need to improve air circulation with higher RPM side and top vent fans. Reply to maddogfargo m 0 l Maks Sanders March 17, 2014 2:49:48 PM i allready checked gpu temp top is 75 *C but r9 can handle 95 before it starts loosing performence is there a program to check cpu temp ?
