k9a2 plat mb
amd 9950 black 3.2ghz
2gig 800/2x1g 667...4g total
vista x32 basic
Just Upgraded to the k9a2 and 9950 from an asus m2vm-v 5000+ 2.7ghz
and my system is actually slower..... experienceing alot of system hangs in simple tasks suck as right clicking to bring up properties box for network connections...
Any help as to what could be the problem or "bottle neck" would be greatly appreciated.
overclocking isnt the problem. Same results with cpu set to default/ @3.2ghz temp 37c idle 42c load.
updating vista to x64 ultimate tonight and have 4 2gig ocz 1066 on the way and will upgrade gpu to 4870x2 in 2 weeks... my guess its either the odd mem setup i have, psu wattage to small, or the 32bit op sys????
the memory o/c is left on auto....the 2 667 are runninng at 667 and the 800 is set to 800
PSU is coolmaster (not sure on model)
did not reinstall op sys.....only replaced cpu and mb so far.....mb drivers up to date....vista auto installed 9950
*edit- also my hd is nearly full 16g/160g left but was the same with the 5000+ 2.7ghz (no sys hangs) so i dont think this is the issue. Basically if its not the mem or the x32 os then im thinking i may have a bad 9950x4.
Just trying to get a verification while im at work before i waste my time "relax time and/or money", at home, if its my cpu bad or setup that is causing the cpu to hang my system...Thxz
