Hi all,

I built a PC for the first time in 2013. It was amazing, and life was good. From power on to surfing the web in under 2 min. All games and applications ran great. As soon as windows 10 installed, performance tanked, and kept dropping. I tried to re-build. New processor, graphics card, and hard drive. All only gave a slight boost.

I found this tool on another forum:

Everything says the hardware should be kicking ass, not dragging it. How do I get everything to work together? Any suggestions would be great. Thanks!

Results should be much better, are you sure all drivers are up to date ???

Check your CPU temp. It's being throttled to .45Ghz. It's either thermal or some messed up bios settings.
Yikes! CPU is holding steady at 99-99.5 C. I have three chassis fans, CPU fan, and two fans on the graphics card. Do I need more fans?
The motherboard is going good at 35C, and the air coming out of the tower feels cool.

Thanks!

CPU temp at 99C and holding indicates an improperly mounted CPU cooler.
Something is loose or not connected.

Ah, that did it. The heat sink for the CPU didn't have a good connection. The thermal paste showed only a small portion was touching. I added more paste, and things are running much faster. I still have some work to do, but at least the computer can keep up. Thanks all!

Adding more paste is not the solution.
LESS paste and the cooler properly connected is the solution.
