Hello!
Check please the CPU usage in % of Diablo 3 in Task Manager without XSplit running.
After that, we will try to adjust XSplit for your PC.

Btw, six-core CPU is enough to stream in 720p with 30,00 fps. Anyways, we will start from low-quality settings and than increase them quietly.

Good. Try to set:
Resolution: 1280x720
Framerate: 25,00
Quality: 10
Preset: XSplit Default
Bitrate: use the "test bandwidth" option in channel settings to find the best one (start from ~2000, if it gives you green light, set 2200 and go on)
Location: use the "test bandwidth" option in channel settings to find the best one
VBV buffer: = bitrate
Audio settings: default or maybe ~128k
