So I upgraded my pc today, My original setup was using a 7700k and a maximus IX Formula (I ended up upgrading earlier than anticipated because my motherboard bricked itself). I am now running the same specs but with a 9900k and Maximus XI Formula. My full specs are below.

i9 9900k 8Cores@5.0Ghz

32GB 3200mhz CL14 TridentZ

GTX 980 TI - STRIX EDITION

Asus Maximus XI Formula

C:/ 512gb M.2 SSD (Samsung 960 Pro)

I have done several stress tests, P95, Cinebench 20, OCCT and I am fairly confident my OC is stable, Also to eliminate this as a problem I have experimented with higher voltages and no OC as a control. This issue persists across all.

For most cases performance is as expected, I get good fps in games, Even CPU intensive ones like Arma that rely heavily on single core performance. Cinebench score was well within expectations and cpu intensive rendering is performing like a dream. HOWEVER. I am having a very strange issue in that whenever I try to launch a program I click the shortcut, Be it on the start menu or taskbar or even on my desktop..... Nothing happens. No proper click animation, But then about 15 seconds later the app will open up as if I had only just clicked it then. Also when I click the start menu maybe 1/10 times it is not responsive to button clicks at all. I even had microsoft excel do the delayed button click thing. Very strange and I have never experienced anything like it before. Any ideas?

No I run windows 10 so just had to re-activate.

Update, Think I fixed it by disabling the nahimic service, It seems it comes with the motherboard and causes a whole host of issues. Will keep updated hopefully this resolves it.

Oh yes, Under normal circumstances I would certainly reinstall. Unfortunately having the down time I had with my old broken board before I could get this new one in has put me under a lot of time pressure to get caught up on work fast. I have a lot of programs that take a lot of time to configure and install and are fairly tightly linked with my OS. It would be a week long project to restore after a fresh install. Unfortunately I don't have even a day spare to do it yet. Perhaps I will do a fresh install after things clear up a bit.

On the plus side however, Disabling the nahimic service seems to have worked wonders. So it should hold me out for now at least.
