Blizzard's StarCraft 2 'melting graphics cards' fix

Developer confirms 'overheating' issue

StarCraft 2 is causing graphics cards to overheat in some systems, Blizzard's confirmed.

Since its release a week ago many gamers have flocked to the internet to report the overheating issue, and now the StarCraft house has offered an official solution.

"Certain screens make your hardware work pretty hard," the developer said in an update.

"Screens that are light on detail may make your system overheat if cooling is overall insufficient. This is because the game has nothing to do so it is primarily just working on drawing the screen very quickly.

"A temporary workaround is to go to your Documents\StarCraft II\variables.txt file and add these lines:

frameratecapglue=30
frameratecap=60

"You may replace these numbers if you want to."

Has anyone on here experienced this problem?
