What exactly are you streaming? Playing music in the background? Flash video? Something in game?

It's possible that you are running into an issue with the Windows scheduler, especially if you background task is CPU intensive. Try lowering the priority on the background process if it doesn't require real-time attention.

Are you talking about multiplayer? if you're trying to stream HD video or something, while playing a game online, you probably won't have the best results. If single player, I wouldn't think it should affect it that much.

Were you by chance running a 32-bit OS with the 640 and 64-bit with the 955? Are your apps and games also 64-bit?

At the very least, you need to give us some more information about what you are streaming and processes are running on your system when the problem occurs. Are you playing single player or multi-player online? We are trying to figure out if this is a net congestion issue or CPU/scheduling.

in my OP i said starcraft 2 with fmle 3.2 and my resolution is 1680x1050 @15fps, no one streams single player sc2 as it is a multiplayer game

and yes the only thing i changed was a 955 and water cooling

fmle is 64 sc2 is 32 but i did not change my os.

Hmm I'm too familiar with fmle. Are there any downloads or uploads going on in the background on from other systems on your network? What router and firmware do you have? What net congestion algorithm are you using? Do you do any P2P (ie. torrents)? Try to remove as many variables as possible and test again. For example, try playing SC2 without fmle. This will help narrow down the problem.

the problem is when i stream, and no im not running anything in the background

i get 18down/2up

and i dont think its a bandwidth thing, even though the game says 100fps it looks and feels like 20fps

streaming takes a toll on your cpu, im also a livestreamer, but it should be fine with your setup. First off double check ur capture device, the resolution/bitrate/frame drops in your encoding log. Just from my general experience, streaming at 15fps may be a little meh. If you want go ahead and post your streaming settings/cap device/bit rates/etc and ill have a look, and your also running in window mode.

if i do anymore more than 15 i start dropping frames, at 15 i dont drop any

vhscreen cap fps doesnt mean anything only when your recording using their software
