  • Gigabyte Z170XP-SLI
    Intel i5 6600K
    Kingston Fury Black 16GB (2x8GB) DDR4 (2400Mhz)
    Palit GeForce GTX 1060
    Windows 10 Home
Problem
Recently upgraded from a Gigabyte GA-78-LMT-S2P, AMD FX-4100 and DDR3 RAM, and I was hoping to get away with a straight swap.
Booted up after replacing everything and installing new drivers, and performance was slow & FPS in games was consistently <10.

Already tried
Performed a Windows 10 Reset, same performance. Performed a clean install via the Media Creation Tool with a DVD, after formatting the drive etc. but still the same poor performance.

Help
When installing the motherboard drivers, Intel Management Engine Interface seems to be failing - is this vital?
