As the title states, I just installed a Gigabyte H81M-H motherboard and an Intel 3 4160 CPU in my PC. Since installing them, my computer's been running slower than before (both parts are upgrades from my previous). The Gigabyte site is telling me I have the most recent BIOS for the mobo (it's rev. 2.1), and I'm not sure what else I can do.
Also, possibly related, my two monitors have blacked out and then reappeared ~5 seconds later, twice since I installed the new components yesterday. Any ideas on what's causing this?
Thanks for any help - I am a novice at this
