New Build Runs Slowwwww!

Hello,
I am posting because my new build is running very slow. It takes forever to fully boot up and it runs WoW at 60 fps max, I know this is ok but I thought it could do better. Anyways here is the list of items, I was thinking it could be the PSU being under powered for the graphics card but I really don't know. If anyone knows of any conflicts between items or why it would run soo slow. This is a first build so I tried to be very careful with static and applying thermal paste. Maybe it could be the voltage levels of the graphic card or the memory timing. I built this system to run Left 4 Dead and even that doesn't run very fast. It is particularly slow in regular windows. I even bought and extra 4 gigs so a total of 8 thinking the ram was too low. Let me know from you experts out there what you think might be causing it to run slow. Im willing to take any advice and give it a shot. I might also take it to a computer repair place to test all the components but I'm hoping its just a bottleneck that I am not seeing. Anyone know of any software I can run to test the system for bottlenecks?
Thank You

Do you have the specific info on what memory you have installed? The type and speed of the memory could have an impact.

*edit* Also I see that Motherboard comes with some built-in overclocking utilities ('Turbo V EVO', 'AutoTune', 'CPU Level-up'). Have you used any of those? Incompatible settings there could also cause this type of an issue.

Do you have the Vsync setting in Wow enabled? If so then that 60fps figure in Wow is completely normal. Basically Vsync locks your framerate at the same speed as your monitor's refresh rate (which is usually 60Hz) so that the two are in sync and you don't experience a artifact called tearing. The same thing goes for Left 4 Dead, if Vsync is enabled in that game your framerates will be locked at 60 with it enabled.

Now for the other issues, download CPU-Z and Realtemp and check what your CPU speed, temps, and voltages are and report them here so we have more info.

I'll check again but I tried to just turn off all the special things the motherboard does and keep it normal. I tried in the beginning but they didn't help so I'm pretty sure I just set them to stock but I'll check again.

Don't know about V-Sync but your probably right, but the comp still runs very slow.

CPU Speed - 3715.3 Mhz

I also made a CPU-Z Print out with more info but I can't attach but will email or refer to if you guys need more info.
Thanks for the replies
