Hi, so yesterday I received my M9i cooler to replace the stock intel cooler. After installing it I have noticed around 30% decrease of fps in Rainbow Six Siege. I posted about this on reddit and people said that I did not apply my thermal paste correctly.

Today I replaced the thermal paste and It hasnt solved anything. The temperatures have improved so it is doing its job.

Specs:
i7 8700
Gigabyte Z370P d3
8 GB Corsair ddr4 ram
Gtx 980
Evga 450 BT PSU
I have 2 case fans.

Any ideas what could be wrong?

NB frequency its 3190
Dram frequency around 1000
This is while in the games menu. I mean it was fine a few days ago, but after switching out the cooler it has gone downhill.

 
You need to know CPU frequency, not NB. RAM frequency as displayed in CPU-Z should be multiplied by 2. That shouldn't change under load. Starting frequency for DDR4 is 2133MHz. All above you must set XMP profile in BIOS to achieve it.
