Well, it turned out it wasn't DirectX 11. DirectX is backwards compatible. Even thought Windows 7 comes with DX11, my card utilizes it as DX10.1. It's simply a software issue which causes GPUs to automatically run at a higher rate to improve graphics. Unfortunately for you laptop users, this means it most likely will not run properly unless it's a gaming rig.
However, I did solve my problem another way. This is from my previous post:
The solution came from another post (which I can’t seem to find the link for) where the individual, running the exact same card as me, took it to the next level. He purchased and installed an Arctic Accelero Twin Turbo II cooling system. It replaces the original factory chassis, fan, and heatsink with one that is designed to handle applications like this. He said his temperatures went from 85C to 56C under the same load and now idles in the mid 40s. That, to me, says it all in a nutshell. Cooling. Unfortunately for you laptop users, cooling will always be an issue... especially if you are trying to play a graphic-intense game on a laptop designed for practical use while resting said laptop on a suffocating surface like a bed comforter or couch cushion.
I just received and installed my Accelero Twin Turbo Pro today. My idle temperature was at 50C just before I shut down. 20 minutes later I had the card set up with the new cooler and was ready to rock. I have to tell you... I was absolutely amazed with the results. My idle temperature is now 38C. My load temperature with the game at its highest graphic settings across the board is 45C... 5C lower than my previous idle temp. It's 5x quieter than the factory fan, even at 100% speed.
In conclusion I must admit it's much easier to make these adjustments when you have a desktop. Blizzard did make some sort of mistake with the graphics coding and hopefully will do something to fix it. Right now the only thing I can suggest is to get a cooling pad for your laptop. Other than that, I really can't suggest anything other than to submit a ticket.
