So apparently this is what is happening, my games are lagging like shi* and my desktop feels sluggish. When I load it keeps on giving me the "Windows Error" message making me choose "Start Windows Normally" or something else. This happened after I installed a new CPU cooler the Noctua ND-14 and my fps is like 30-60 in left 4 dead 2 when it's supposed to be around 150-200, can anyone here explain what's going on? I tried uninstalling- reinstalling the drivers, the sound was muffled as hell too but I stopped using the Nvidia Drivers, I had BSOD a few times before....
And between the time GTX 570 was not lagging during gaming
... and when the GTX 570 started lagging - only the CPU cooler got changed? Nothing else changed?
I was lagging already when I reassembled the pc back together, I had a few BSOD and when I loaded it gave me the "Windows Error," also the whole screen slowly disappears like a white line coming down to clean up the words.
Yeah, it's only when I installed the CPU cooler, replacing the Coolermaster 212+ and the GTX 570 is new, got it last week, replaced the GTX 460.
