Hi..recently I just built a new system. Prior, had an i5. (older model) I now have an intel core i7 2600k, ASUS P8P67 (Deluxe), WD 1TB HHD, 1000w Seasonic, graphics 4670 for monitor, but took out the 580 GTX because it got very hot and I need to use another case with better cooling. Anyway by just using the computer normally for emails online browsing etc., is not fast like I thought it would be. The old i5 was faster. Can it be I need to go into advanced bios to make configurations? I did try once and my saved settings made it where I could not boot to windows. So I went back in to set defaults and now I'm ok. But I was wondering if theres any setting to make this i7 faster? Any suggestions, I would really appreciate..Thx Pk
You wouldn't notice the difference between a Celeron and a i7-2600 in internet and email because the cpu only uses about 1% of it's resources for that, so if it's slow then it's your internet connection.
Did you do a fresh Windows install when you replaced your motherboard?
Yes I had a SSD (OCZ 120GB, but I took it out before I reinstalled windows again. Because at the time I had lots of issues with BSOD. Didn't now what to do. I removed the GTX 580 and redid the memory, one mod at a time. Finally I figured out that it was the TPU switch was on and caused this. I'm still waiting to get a better case for the 580. So, you think I should put back the SSD?
