So i recently did some upgrading on my computer and realized that im not getting the performance i was hoping for. Im currently running:
-GA-78LMT-USB3
-Msi R9 380 4GB
-CX600 Cosair
-16GB 1600Mhz RIPJaws Ram
-2 120GB SSD
-1 600GB HDD
-AMD FX8350
I recently just upgraded the processor from a AMD FX6300 and have not noticed any difference in gaming performance, its almost as if its worse. I am also getting low FPS while gaming.
Anyone have any suggestions or comments on either of these. Thanx

Horrible motherboard for a 8-core chip. It's 4+1 power phase can barely power the 6 core and it's more suited for the 4-cores. Maybe it can't power it fully. You'd need to run some games or benchmarks with monitoring software like openhardwaremonitor and see the speed of the cpu cores, how many cores are being used and the % that each core is being used.

Thank you for your input. I was considering getting a new one because i can having problems with my usb ports shorting out as well.

I installed open hardware monitor and ran a stress test with Prime95. Here are the results

Okay i guess that was a bad print off. I thought core 6 and 8 where failing but i ran the intel burn test and didnt see the same results.
My computer runs as 18C and when im gaming it usually gets up to about 30-35C so i dont think the temp is a problem. But what should my processor and the cores be running at while im gaming???
