Here are my specs no changes since i check'd it last.

check your temperatures while playing
I think there high what should it be?
I was just wondering if there is anything i can try or any soultions out there im sure its sto high if you can give more detail on what im dowanloading im not very computer smart.
speedfan will check all your temperatures and it has a bunch of features you don't necessarily need, it'll let you control your fan speeds as well if you don't have manual control over that.

If you have anything above 80 degrees C on full load (like when playing) then thats bad and you need to blow out your system with some compressed air and check for any non running fans
ok so i downloaed it what i am looking for ? i see temps for my gpu and a little fire thingy whats next?
and my fans are clean and both fans run
and i have temps above 80
i mean like i said i dont really know what im looking at and its getting more and more hard to play a game that i'd know i like if it ran properly
Do you know how to configure your fan speed?
If so, make sure to set it to 100% and make sure the temp stays lower.
i dont know how.

i think i figured it out how to set the fans to 100%
i went to configure he options and check'd the box that said "Set fan speed to 100% on program exit"
What software are you using to control your fan speed?

If your nvidia is EVGA brand, EVGA provides overclock and fan control utility for the graphics card.

RivaTuner is popular and can control most of the fans on the graphics card and motherboard, but might be a little too complex if you are not sure what you are doing.

So what's your CPU temp?
i have no idea whats controling the fans speed......i dont know how to check if my nividia is EVGA,

cpu goes up to 110
i did a pretty good clean took m computer apart it seems that the temp of the cpu dosent rise as fast now while playing but it rises and dosent hold a stable temp
why outta all the other high quality games i play that this one is making my computer run slow?
No idea, they did indeed give up on this stating there wasn't enough common ground amongst the people having issues to pick out what may be causing the slow downs.
Well, your computer is getting really hot. That's part of the problem, assuming you're talking about degrees C. But there's a problem with SC2 itself and not running perfect. Blizz's fault.
Is that CPU a Q6600 model? We have a few of those here and they hardly go above the early 60s (Celsius) when running Starcraft II for hours. Are you using the stock heatsink or a custom heatsink with the push/twist locks? If you are, make sure that all four sides are pressed down and locked properly as one loose side will cause temperatures to spike up like that.
