I've got a 6,1 (12 core D300) at work that I tote home on the weekends for entertainment purposes. I have Windows 8,1 installed on an external thunderbolt drive with a few games. Seems that when the Starcraft action gets hot and heavy it will shut down. When it does, it feels quite a bit warmer than whenever I'm doing work on the Mac side. My daily work doesn't really stress the GPU - it is mostly CPU-based 3D rendering. So I'm wondering if the drivers aren't set up to cool the thing as well in Windows, or if the machine really just isn't able to handle Starcraft. (!) Obvious troubleshooting step would be to install Starcraft on the Mac side and try it there, but I'd rather keep OSX for work and Windows for entertainment. I'll probably do it anyway out of curiosity, but thought I'd check here for other people's experiences using the nMP for gaming.
