almost anything i try to do is alot slower. im in safe mode right now running malwarebytes and it feels alot faster than before and i had to reinstall windows to get it to even boot.

my browser takes along time and i dont think its the internet because im getting download speed of around 20 Mbps

but in safe mode evrything feels fine. how would i go about fixing that

That points into the direction of driver issues. Like rolli59 said, have you installed the drivers that came with your motherboard?

What graphics are you using? A dedicated card or onboard graphics?

Edit: Got beaten ...

Safe Mode doesn't load certain stuff, a hardware issue should be as prominent as in normal mode, imo. Except it being one of the things not adressed in safe mode (no driver loaded). But that again rules out basic stuff like CPU and RAM, not graphics however.

Did you actually reinstall Windows or did you just move the hard drive to your new computer and try to update the drivers?

if by cooler you meen cpu fan then yes and i did apply thermal grease. tried with both sticks of memory and dont see a difference. is there some way i would be able to benchmark my builds performance and compare it with what it actually should be? and if its not the ram wat else would it be?

Check your temps. Both at idle and under load. Use Prime 95 to load.

HWMonitor:

Coretemp:

Prime 95:

Also make sure you monitor GPU temps. HWMonitor will check the temps. Use Furmark to load the card. 10-15 minutes should do it.

Check your hard drive's SMART status.

You did plug the power supply into the graphics card right?

this is wat i got from speedfan
our hard disk is a ST3250820AS with firmware 3.AHG.
The average temperature for this hard disk model is 38°C (min=29°C max=48°C) and yours is 34°C.

Attribute Current Raw

Troubled attributes:
Attribute Airflow Temperature failed in the past. Its current value is 66, the worst value was 44 and the threshold is 45. According to the manufacturer, this is an advisory condition.

NOTE : your hard disk Power On Hours Count attribute current value (86) is below the normal range (98 - 100) reported for your specific hard disk model. Basically your hard disk was powered on for more than the maximum time the average user did. This means that either all of the reports collected are from hard disks that were not powered on for too long (this is realistic for recent models) or that your hard disk is becoming old. Usually this is not considered as a pre-failure advisory, but you should check whether you want to replace the hardware or keep an eye on its performances over time.

NOTE : your hard disk Power Cycle Count attribute current value (97) is below the normal range (100 - 100) reported for your specific hard disk model. Basically your hard disk was power cycled more times than the maximum number the average hard disk was. Power cycles put some stress on the hard disk mechanic. Sometimes power cycles can be caused by a loose hard disk power connector. Make sure it is properly fastened.

The overall fitness for this drive is 85%.
The overall performance for this drive is 90%.

Does not look like any of those mean it's about to fail.
